Exclamation 26 year old baby tooth breaking apart

AS mentioned I am 26 years old and have one baby tooth in the on my lower left jaw that has never had a permanent tooth beneath it. It has never given me any problem but over the last few months it seemed like it was almost submerging. Just this week I chiped the tooth on one of the corner peaks. It didn't hurt at all and as I'm currently overseas thought I could just wait till I get home. However today I was eating and some how the tooth cracked from where the chip was and a little bit broke off.

Now it feels like another bit may also fall out... again there is no real pain just a little annoyance. The strange thing is that where to tooth is chiped and a piece broken off it seems I have perfectly healthy gums there.. its almost as if the gum has filled the entire inside of the baby tooth. Is that even possible... and any suggestions as too what I should do. Baring in mind still no real pain... although am afraid to eat in case more tooth breaks off, and considering I won't be returning home for another 5 weeks.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
