Are they milk teeth or permanent ones?

I would see another vet for a second opinion. I would think there has to be pain involved for a cat to have them falling out.

Go to another vet or preferably a dentist vet, other than brushing them every day and dental treats many need yearly professional cleanings, he likely needs the bad tooth pulled and the rest cleaned sounds like he has gingivitis eg the gums are inflammed/loose which is why teeth are falling out. Maybe antibiotics as well. He definitely needs treatment or he'll lose more teeth and dental problems affect their health/appetite a lot, any infection in the mouth will just keep spreading until stopped
