Chances are there is also a dent in the case of the iPad. The odd behavior you are describing is ghost touches on the screen. Unfortunately its nothing cool like a poltergeist has possessed your tablet and you will now be able to move objects with it. It just means that something is pressing up on the screen, causing the digitizer to misbehave. Luckily its a very simple repair. I highly recommend taking it to a reputable local repair shop to have the repair done. It will take them no time and your iPad will be as good as new.
