A 21-year-old male asked:
if the dentist punctured my nerve the other day while doing a filling and it still hurts, can that nerve heal?

Need more info: Was it the nerve in the tooth or the nerve from the injection site? If the pulp was exposed, then a root canal is in order. If it was the injection site, then it will heal.
