Wondering if it's dangerous to accidentally swallow a chipped tooth?

In brief: Most likely no..

Not dangerous to swallow, but dangerous to 'inhale'.

In brief: Swallowed tooth

Swallowing a piece of a tooth will not harm you.
It will just pass thru.

In brief: Assume

I assume you swallowed apiece of a tooth that chipped off.
Should pass through unnoticed. Please, however, see your dentist asap to rx the damaged tooth before a manageable problem gets out of hand.
