DS swallowed tooth

ok now dont get me wrong I'm not worried about getting it back. But my DS swallowed a tooth. I was wondering what happens to it. does he digest it, like it gets broken down? or will it pass whole. and does it pose any health worries?

  • I swallowed one of my baby teeth.. it got stuck in my cereal and I didn't even know it was gone for about an hour. He'll be just fine, and I would assume it passes through whole. No worries chica!

  • It should pass through with no problems. My son swallowed baby teeth a lot.

  • The whole thing got me thinking so rather then search DS's poop thought I'd ask.
