Q
Nerve damage?

I was hit hard in the front tooth recently by a metal object and it has been moved back and down and is now out of line slightly. It is also very very sensitive when i breathe and drink, also when i bite down on it, it feels loose. I’m not sure whether it is, but could it be a sign of nerves damage?

Possibly, yes. The mobility could also be indicative of a fracture in the tooth itself. you need to see your dentist ASAP nd have an x-ray taken.
