nerve dead in tooth

I was told that if the nerve dies in a tooth that the tooth will probably abscess. Anyone know if this is true & why? Thanks.

Re: nerve dead in tooth

well ,i think that is the case ,when they take a nerve out of the tooth ,it is alive and if it dies while in the tooth it makes the tooth go bad
so yes i would say thats true
