At 5 months, he may have been lucky enough that these weren't permanent teeth. In any case, dogs do just fine when missing a few. I would recommend a brief exam with your vet and letting them look the teeth over that were knocked out. If the full root of the tooth is present, no surgery may be needed aside from potentially closing the sockets. If they aren't fully present, your vet will likely need to drill the roots out and then close the sockets. Antibiotics and pain medication are wise in a situation like this.
