Thanks for posting your query.

Swallowing a tooth does not cause any choking and is not a health hazard. It should come out in the stools. For this eat bananas atleast 4-5 in number daily for 3-4 days. If there are severe abdominal cramps then get an evaluation done from a gastroenterologist.

But the possibility for this is very rare.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us.

Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up query.

Wishing you good health.
