I'd get it checked out by a compotent frame builder and see what they say. Like many folks I rode a seriously dented frame for months but really didn't have too much confidence in it, which definitely made my life less fun.
After the crash, my head tube was twisted as well and it made the whole bike track strangely. Finally got it repaired and it turned out that some of the lugs had cracked as well (weren't visible) so was pretty glad about that.
The best thing you can do is get it checked out and then make a decision about leaving it and riding as is, repairing or replacing.
Failing that, post some pictures, and we'll all give our 'expert' opinion on yer dent.
