How can your mouth still hurt three months after a tooth extraction?

the nerve is not dead


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.

What is the result of a dead nerve in your teeth?

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. :(

What is the function of nerves in the tooth?

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.

How long can a tooth stay in your mouth after the nerve has been removed?
