In brief: That depends

That depends on why the tooth is loose.
If the tooth is recovering from a minor trauma then the answer is yes. If youhave periodontal disease and bone loss around the tooth or if the tooth has had a major trauma then the answer is no. No matter the cause loose permanent teeth should be examined by a dentist.
