I slammed my finger in a door. What can I do to save my nail? Will it regrow fast?

In brief: Nail injury

Most likely the injury you sustained damaged the attachment of the nail to the nail bed.
If there was no damage to the nail matrix then your nail should eventually grow out and appear normal over time. However, once the damage was done there is nothing you can do to "save" the nail other than wait patiently.
