May have gum disease.
See your Dentist. Referral to a Periodontist may be prudent. "Small piece of tooth" may be a spicule of bone.

In brief: Yes you should

See a local dentist to determine whether or not a small piece of tooth was actually left.
That may or may not be the case. There are a number of other possibilities as well. Swollen glands and inflamed gums are two reasons to have this evaluated as soon as possible!
