Hello there. You are not going to die. Chances are, The tooth would come out in stools. If it doesn't, then you have to consult a Surgeon and also get a USG abdomen done. But be rest assured you are not going to die. The chances of it coming out with stools are more. If you get pain abdomen, fever etc, then its a sigh of urgent symptoms. Regards
