It is not about the tooth fairy, that's not a problem it will come anyway etc etc
What did you want to do with it?
Keep it of course!
I find this a very strange question - I always assumed everyone would like to keep the first lost tooth of their child?

As a child I negotiated to get paid by the tooth fairy but still keep my teeth! I had a little box shaped like a house to put them in. Looked like a jewellery box, inside HUMAN TEETH. Some still slightly bloodstained. Sort of sums up the kind of child I was.
YANBU to feel upset about it, OP, but you need to keep it to yourself and try to get perspective. Teeth are tiny little things, they can end up anywhere as they fall out. We dropped one of DD's on the carpet at home and still never found the bloody thing despite searching for hours - it must have bounced off out of sight and eventually been got by the hoover. It's a memento you wanted but there will be many more things to keep as the years go by. You're not going to forget his lovely toddler smile full of pearly whites, even when he's a hulking teenager with a brace.
