This is an issue: Which needs to be addressed in person with a dentist who can take a history, do an exam and do any pertinent tests. Take care.

Call your dentist: Loose tooth means abscess, bone loss, trauma, or fracture. Please call your dentist for evaluation asap.

See a dentist: You have a couple of choices. First is to see a dentist for evaluation and treatment. Second is to do. Toning and loose the tooth.
Better to find out the cause and treatment options.
