Hello there – there's no need to worry. The nerve exists inside the tooth. So it is removed along with the tooth. With rare exception once the tooth is removed within a short period of time healing should take place. During this time there may be minor discomfort. You should follow your dentist's instructions. Within a few days to a week you should be comfortable. Please let me know if you need additional information to answer your question. Otherwise a positive rating would be much appreciated. Be well – Dr. Shernan
