If you were using a screw driver, no worries. You can't really impart enough torque to deform the worm gear with a screw driver. Put a bit on the end of your 1/4" ratchet and its a different story. When it does become damaged, you will find that its *easier* to torque than it was before. If it got more difficult and then impossible to turn, you're most likely fine.
