Read your query.

Loose tooth has usually nothing to do with pharyngitis. This can be due to periodontal reason ( if you have not been maintaining your teeth well).

I would advice you to stop panicking and visit your local dentist(do not try to remove it yourself as you may end up doing ore harm) and have it evaluated.If very loose and hampering your eating process ,have it extracted .Missing tooth can be rehabilitated with a denture.Have your teeth professionally cleaned.

Hope this was helpful.
Thanks and regards.

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The loose teeth can be because of the loss of supporting alveolar bone around teeth secondary to gum or teeth infection.
You need to consult a oral physician and get it ruled out. You need to take radiographs like OPG to check the status or the remaining bone and to rule out any infection.
If it is secondary to gum infection, you can get your teeth cleaned by scaling and root planing. If sufficient amount of bone is remaining, then we can place a bone like material(graft) around the teeth and make them strong.
If there is a tooth infection, then it has to be treated.
Regarding your financial problem, you can go to government dental hospital or a education institute attached with a dental hospital, where the treatments are done free of cost.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.

Loose tooth can be of various reasons. Depending on your age ,medical status, any life style diseases. Just have a consultation with a dentist and find out what's the reason and a suitable remedy. Loose tooth can be splinted with the adjacent sound teeth or a root canal can be done. If its not restorable or splintable extraction is the only option. All these can be decided only by your dentist.
