Lost a tooth?

So Enzo and i just got back from the dog field. I noticed that one of his top front teeth is missing. It isnt bleeding and i can touch it, so i know its not causing him any pain. I think it happened when he was trying to eat/lick the snow/ice at the field.
Does this warrant a trip to the vet?

Poor Enzo :grouphug: ....is it completely broken off? The root would still be there and I would be concerned about infection so would take him to the vet or at least give them a call.

there seems to be a little piece of the tooth there, they said to watch it for about a week, and make sure it doesnt get infected.

I think i might makeup a bowl of warm salt water and dip a cloth in it and hold it on his gum for a bit.
