The nerve usually dies because of an infection in the pulp at the centre of the tooth (while this is happening you will have very bad toothache! The dentist will prescribe antibiotics to kill the infection then after a week the tooth is drilled and the puss left in the centre of the tooth is drained out through the tooth using a procedure called a root canal. The now dead tooth is then filled and stabilised.

Dying nerves (which I assume you've experienced, given the question) have a tendency of hurting. A lot. Dead nerves have a strong tendency of getting infected, which then brings you down the root of Tooth Abscesses and root canal and general dental hell. If your tooth nerve is dead, see your dentist. (S)He should remove the nerve and then fill the space left to re-inforce your tooth. Dead teeth also go dark-coloured. :(

The nerve inside it is probably dead. We only feel toothache because the nerve that goes to the tooth is exposed.

Yes, generally when you remove the nerve root you then have a dead tooth. the dentist must fill the canal and either cap it or discuss other options with you, as it will turn gray because it has no nerve.

The nerve endings are found in the pulp cavity centre of the tooth, the nerve is carried in the tooth root.

It is a tooth that the root has been damaged and is "dead"

you may have injured the nerve for that tooth, it's best to see a dentist, it won't take long to see what the issue is and its a lot better than losing the tooth.

There are no nerves IN a tooth. The nerve is above the tooth. That's why when it's loose and you eat, your tooth hurts. Hope this helps

Yes, a dead tooth can cause or trigger a headache.

The part of the tooth that has the nerves in it is right under the crown of your tooth ''aka'' the top part of your tooth and they travel down into you gums hope this help's

If the nerve has been removed in your tooth, you need to have a root canal done in order to keep your tooth in your mouth. A tooth that has had a root canal treatment and ideally a crown as well, has about 85% chances of staying in your mouth for the rest of your life.

Go to the dentist! You can not run around with a infection in your tooth. If you think you have a infection in your tooth that is enough reson to go to the dentist. They know if a nerve is infected or inflamed. -------- Even if it is inflamed that means that the dental nerve is infected with bacteria, and if left untreated it can lead to gangrene and root treatment. See this video about infection of the dental nerve

It happens. Was/is it a lower wisdom tooth? The inferior alveolar nerve travels through the lower jaw, this is the nerve the dentist "numbs" to work on a bottom tooth. Lower wisdom tooth problems often cause an ear ache. It could be an infection, it could be the nerve was bruised, it could be do to normal healing with a little swelling. Tell the dentist/oral surgeon.

It is important to know that the nerve is removed not killed. If a tooth has had to fight a long infection, many times the tooth is dead, which means it is unable to fight the infection present inside the canal. The treatment for this situation is root canal therapy. Most of the time the patient does not feel anything throughout the procedure except the delivery of local anesthesia. The treatment goal is to clean the canal space and remove all nerve tissue and bacteria that is present inside the canal. A successful root canal treatment will remove the pain experienced by the patient immediately unless the infection has spread outside the root around the tooth, then it may still be sensitive to biting forces. So to answer your question, the nerve is removed and therefore there is ideally no nerve tissue left in the tooth after the procedure.

While in a tooth or after pulled? Inside your tooth in your mouth, the nerve may not die. You may have to get a root canal done to remove the nerve and keep the tooth. If a person does not pull an infected tooth, the infection may strangle the nerve and leave a non-sensitive tooth. You will then have a grey tooth with no life in it. If this happens and your lucky enough without medication so as the infection goes away; you would have experienced a natural root death and will need to keep an eye on the tooth and get x rays done often. Your tooth will still rot and you will not know it because you feel little pain in the tooth. If your talking about the nerve in the pulled tooth's orifice, bottom jaws could be damaged for months or even permanently. You may also feel as though your lip was numb if you have damage. Top back orifices may perforate the nasal cavity and may hurt constantly. Please be more specific for specific answers.

that is a root canal of a molar tooth. Meaning the dentist is removing the nerve and pulp of the tooth.

Yes the tooth's nerve is in the roots and ends in the crown of the tooth. Extracting a tooth will remove the nerve. It is important to discuss different treatment options with a dentist because sometimes a root canal is the preferred treatment and sometimes extraction is more appropriate. Not all teeth need to be replaced but if the tooth is important for function, bite stability, or esthetics than tooth replacements such as dental implants or fixed bridges become important options to consider.

The tooth will continue to hurt for a couple reasons, either the nerve in the tooth has been tampered with or it is just still sore.

A loose baby tooth that is turning gray or black is a dead tooth. A dentist can take the tooth out.

You might think that a tooth's nerve tissue is vitally important to a tooth's health and function, but in reality it's not. A tooth's nerve tissue plays an important role in the growth and development of the tooth, but once the tooth has erupted through the gums and has finished maturing the nerve's only function is sensory, it provides the tooth with the ability to feel hot and cold.In regards to the normal day to day functioning of our mouths, the sensory information provided by a single tooth is really quite minimal. Dentists realize that on a practical level it is pretty much academic whether a tooth has a live nerve in it or not. If a tooth's nerve tissue is present and healthy, wonderful. But if a tooth has had its nerve tissue removed during root canal treatment that's fine too, you will never miss it.

A cracked tooth or a damaged deep filling can cause a tooth's nerve to die. Grinding teeth can also cause nerve damage.

The part of a tooth where the nerve and blood vessels are found is called the pulp chamber.

If you have an exposed nerve, only a dentist can help you with that.

No, but it can kill a person that swallows it
