What will happen if the nerve in my jaw breaks?

Im 14 years old and a week ago I had an Xray because i had a sunken tooth. this sunken tooth has made the nerve in my jaw slightly wrap around it. I had 2 choices to get it taken out in surgery or keep it there.

If I went to surgery there was a chance I could break my jaw or the nerve break. the other one there was a chance of cavity problems and dental flossing as my wisdom tooth is slowly growing over it. What will happen if the nerve in my jaw breaks?

Nerve damage
by: Sharon B., RDH

Nerve damage is a risk in many tooth extractions, which are still performed every single day by dental specialists. In some rare instances, nerve damage does result, but it isn't common. When a nerve is damaged there may be temporary or permanent numbness in the side of the face which is effected, or droopiness of the mouth and lips on one side.

If the dentist didn't think that it was something they could perform or that it didn't need to be done, then he or she either would have referred you to a specialist or not recommended the treatment.
