The best answer I have is, "it depends". Really, it depends how much damage was done and how loose the tooth is. It would be a good idea to see your dentist and get an X-ray as soon as possible to determine if the tooth is fractured or not. If it isn't , he or she may be able to sprint it for a few days until the socket heals. There will always be a possibility that you may need a root canal in addition in order to save the tooth. Let me know if you have any further questions.
