Hi, it appears that you have done the right thing to prevent any problems. Immediate treatment is what is needed in order to avoid any damage to gums or teeth. The enamel on your teeth is very strong and hard to permeate and if you were able to remove the battery acid quickly there should be no problems going forward.
Did you burn you gum tissue when this happened?
