In brief: BABY TOOTH
Usually it falls off without any problem except control any bleeding if theres any and wait for the coming of the permanent tooth.

In brief: See your dentist
If your child breaks a baby tooth it is important to see your dentist to make sure the trauma did not also damage the underlying permanent tooth.
Also if the baby tooth is lost it maybe important to take steps to preserve space for the permanent tooth.
