It's possible: Really can't tell the condition of that tooth periodontally or if it feels loose due to the adjacent extraction(s). Why not ask the dentist who extracted the teeth ?

Not unusual: Should tighten right up again. If still loose after a week to 10 days, see the Dentist or Oral Surgeon who treated you.
