Yes, it is possible for a loose tooth to tighten up. In general, in the setting of trauma, a tooth may become loose, because it has been jarred out of the socket a little. But over time, the tooth can resettle and stabilize.
You should eat a soft diet for the next 2 weeks. If this does not help and your tooth is still loose, then you need to see your dentist, you may need proper stabilization
