In brief: Could be

If the tooth is loose, you need an xray to determine if it is broken or periodontally involved.
In either case you should schedule a dental visit as you may swallow it, or worse yet aspirate it requiring lung surgery to correct the problem.

In brief: Potentially

If the tooth came out while you were sleeping, you could aspirate it (inhale it) and choke on it.
It is best to see your dentist and get this tooth removed.
