Replace space: Replace the tooth with an implant or hold the space with a bridge. Failure to quickly fill the space can result in other teeth moving and create more dental issues.

Get an Xray: See your dentist and get an xray of the site to make sure there are no pieces of the tooth under the gums. The dentist can give you options after he examines the area and surrounding bone. You have many options. A few are , do nothing, place an implant or bridge, build a removable prosthetic to replace the tooth, or move another tooth into the space with orthodontics.
