In brief: Non-Vital ?

It is very possible that the nerve in that tooth has died.
Have the tooth examined by a local dentist for treatment.

In brief: Dead or non-vital

A dead, or non-vital, tooth is simply a tooth that no longer has access to blood supply.
A dead or non-vital tooth is recognizable through a slight or extreme discoloration of the tooth caused by chronic abscess or root canal therapy. See your dentist for evaluation and treatment.
