A loose tooth can be a problem, as it is painful, but it doesn't lead to an allergic reaction. Upon removing the tooth, if a large hole remains, the gums should be sutured. Antibiotics are advised as a precaution to prevent infection, but prednisolone is contraindicated as it suppresses the immune system. There should not be any "debris" after the removal of a loose tooth, and the vet told you there was no abscess. Was the cat vaccinated around this time? The antibiotics did not control the infection, either because it was due to a bacteria resistant to these antibiotics, or due to a fungal infection. The prednisolone suppressed the inflammation until the infection was too severe to suppress further. You might try giving homeopathic Silica 30c twice a day as well as a good immune stimulent such as echinacea and golden seal.
