Wow. I am fuming to hear that a (deleted/stranger) would do that to your dog. Wow. Just had to say that--where the heck do people get the idea that someone else's dog is their plaything???
As for that missing tooth--my guy is missing one lower canine & adjacent premolars, just gone (he arrived that way, 3rd world dog), and he's just fine. I have no idea how that happened.
And on the lighter side, just last week, I had him out in the woods, looked down, and PANICKED when I notice he was freshly missing MORE TEETH--the premolars on the other lower side.
PANICKED---phoned my husband, made a vet appointment, because I could not imagine a healthy dog just losing teeth for no reason.
Later that day, realized the 'missing teeth' was simply his teeth covered by his black & red lip flap. Oooh boy- embarrassment and relief all at once.
So I don't think you need to worry, or go for implants, or anything else unless he's got bad gums, bad breath, or other indication of ill dental health.
