It : It is unlikely that the piece of chipped tooth can be used. Still, good thinking. If the entire tooth including the root came out, it can be put back in some cases. Your dentist will x-ray the area to determine the extent of the damage. The tooth may require a filling, crown, or veneer to repair it. If the tooth becomes sensitive, it may requie root canal. Although unlikely, if the root is fractured, the tooth may need to be removed.

It's : It's possible the tooth can heal on its own, but i recommend seeing your dentist to evaluate the area. In most cases, the tooth will be splinted or joined temporarily to the adjacent teeth for stability and to promote healing in the proper position. There is also a chance the tooth will become sensitive and require root canal soon or even years from now.
A member asked:

I : I suggest that the tooth be re-evaluated to see if there is damage to the nerve. If so, a root canal will be needed. If not, a permanent crown may be required to repair the tooth despite the age of the patient.
