Swallowed Solid Object

Hi I have swallowed dental crown by mistake - less than an inch solid dental crown. actally the crown on my tooth removed while chewing the food and i have swallowed it. once swallowed then i have realised that dental crown is removed and swallowed becuase it was loose. Can someone please advise, will it pass out in digestive track , and how do i know that it is out and will not cause any problem. I am worried since morning.

Please do not worry. It will pass through the digestive tract. I practise paediatric surgery and children always swallow even larger objects which come out the other end without any problem in a couple of days max.
