Take him to the vet. You can get prescription pain meds from the vet.

What attacked him? A cat? Another guinea pig?

I did a research for you, it seems like the tooth is gonna grow back. However, I do notice he has some serious shedding, doesn't he?

Teeth can grow back but it won't if the root fell off. So it depends on how the tooth broke off. You need to take your pig to the vet.
He will likely has to be handfed too. Did he eat anything after it happened?

i agree. we have enough guinea pigs in the world and breeding is wrong when there are guinea pigs in rescues that need homes.

Wow, I hope the picture you showed with both of the pigs is not their regular cage. Can you post a pic of where they are being housed?

You need to separate the male and female immediately.

It was difficult to decifer from your post but did you say they are outside now?? Outside is not an appropriate place for guinea pigs.

I am NOT yelling, I am just being VERY emphatic. Please don't be offended, this is very important!

Those are VERY HIGH PREY DRIVE dogs! Strap or screw that cage down to the table, and put a lid on it with weights on top of that. Then PUT THAT PIGGIE CAGE IN A ROOM WHERE THE DOGS CAN'T GET TO IT!!!! Keep the door to that room CLOSED! Your piggies are dust if those dogs get them again.

Meanwhile, you should wash any cuts out with mild soap or dish detergent, dab-don't rub-with a paper towel to dry the area, and put a thin smear of neosporin (triple antibiotic) on the open areas. Watch closely for redness, swelling, or red streaks in the open areas which indicate infection and require emergency care.

I'm sorry this happened to your piggie. Dogs are very determined, and very dangerous to any small animal they view as prey. Please don't take any chances. If you leave the house, and the dogs are unsupervised, they WILL get your piggies.

You might not know of the risks but common sense and basic biology tells us that male + female = babies.
