Hey there! So sorry to hear about your little guy, that must’ve hurt. Unfortunately, dental care is no joke with hedgehogs as they’re susceptible to various dental diseases. If the tooth was ripped out completely, there most likely would have been some blood, so there’s a chance it was broken, and a broken tooth with exposed root is not good. You say that you don’t have a nearby vet, but this is definitely something that should be checked. If you don’t have any small mammal vets nearby, call your local dog and cat vet and ask if they would be willing just to try to examine your hedgie, hedgehog permitting.
As far as feeding, if you have a syringe at home, soak some kibble in water until it’s pasty enough to put in the syringe, and syringe feed them. Also, keep an eye out to make sure they’re peeing, pooping, and drinking. Again, I’m sorry this happened!
Hope this helps 🙂
