A trauma to teeth can affect is vitality. Yous should consult a dentist and an Xray should be taken. The mobility of the tooth should be assessed by the dentist. You have not mentioned your age which is an important factor in determining the treatment.

Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, a tooth becomes mobile after a trauma for some time. It will hurt when you try to move it. So please do not try to check on it repeatedly. The mobility will decrease after some days as the tooth refixes in the socket. If you notice any discoloration or swelling near the root of the tooth, consult a dentist. Otherwise you do not need to worry. You can take pain killers for symptomatic relief. Take care!
