Yes, it is common to have loose teeth after a cleaning. It will go away 1-2 days after the cleaning as the gums tighten up around the teeth.

It is not common to have a loose teeth after scaling. In chronic gingivitis normally there is less calculus and tendency to bleed on touch but in chronic periodontitis there is heavy calculus deposit and during dental scaling when these are removed the affected tooth becomes loose.
