I fell and now one of my teeth is loose. Can it be saved or am I going to lose it?

It really depends on the condition of the tooth. Your best bet is to get in to see your dentist right away. If you don’t have a dentist, there are emergency dentists who will see you. Some even the same day.
Best case scenario, the fall just stretched the ligaments on your teeth. Your dentist can stabilize the tooth with a splint until the ligaments have time to heal.
You also want to make sure there isn’t something more seriously wrong. Obviously, I can’t tell you the verdict on your tooth with no way to examine it. The best thing for you to do is to get seen.
