Dr. Arnold Malerman answered
52 years experience Orthodontics
Cause?: If loose because of trauma, perhaps. If loose because of infection (abscess or gum disease), perhaps temporarily but only temporarily. You can't fix loose permanent teeth yourself. Gargling with crazy glue or tying them together won't work. Please see your dentist asap. 'referral to a periodontist may be in order.
