I have a horse with an old tongue injury. What type of bit might work for him for dressage?

I personally don't have much experience with dressage but I do know the affects of a mouth injury on a horse. In my opinion start out with something soft like a sort of happy mouth, I wouldn't get any bit that encourages playing or chewing. Maybe look into some types of flashes so that it keeps his/her mouth closed so she does not accidentally bite or injure his/her tongue again
