    Not unless it was unusually sharp. It will work its way through your system and pass in a couple of days at most.

    Yes this can sometimes be a problem if a person has aspirated the tooth. If you start coughing over the next few days I would go to your hospital and have a chest xray taken to be sure that the tooth is not lodged in your lungs.

    No there won't be any complications of swallowing a piece of broken tooth. It will come out eventually from your other end. hehe....

    From my own view, there is nothing complicated in swallowing yourown tooth, because you will still excreate it out like everyother waste

    It is not dangerous but u should poop it out and bring it back to a dentist, dont do it in your toilet but in a bucket.

    This all sounds very nasty but the dentist can ,,paste,, it back and that is a lot more cheaper then a fake ,,half,,tooth

  • no problem at all. its like a piece of corn! HAHAHAHAHA. just dont look for it if you know what i mean, take a rain check from the tooth fairy!

    not really seeing that it's an old tooth as soon as it gets to your digestive system your stomach acids are gonna burn it up into nothing

    Thankfully, you cannot do it more than 32 times.
