In brief: Loose tooth

It depends on whether the tooth is fractured or not, and whether the tooth and surrounding gum and bone is healthy.
If the tooth and bone are otherwise healthy, the loose tooth can often be stabilized by splinting. See your dentist for an evaluation.

Avoid biting into anything else and eat a soft diet with liquids.

In brief: Have it checked

Have your tooth checked by a local dentist.
Both a clinical exam and an x-ray will be necessary in order to determine exactly what happened, if there is some underlying problem or the tooth is just temporarily sore and loose and will heal and tighten up on its own. In the meantime try not to eat on that tooth, especially hard foods.

In brief: See ur dentist

In many cases, the loose tooth is temporarily splinted to adjacent teeth, which helps stabilize it until the bone tightens up around it.
