Good day Doc,

for the past year i,ve had a broken tooth at the back of my lower jaw, so 2day after i had my lunch and went to the bathroom and guggled with warm water and salt the very same tooth went out with its roots, but i do not feel any pain at all.

Definitely see a dentist- unlikely that an entire tooth falls out UNLESS there is severe gum disease
