If the space of missing first molar is closed with second molar , will this damage the vitality of that tooth. I mean what will happen with the nerve that supply that toot?
What Will Happen To Nerve When Closing Space of Missing First Molar?

There should not be any nerve damage moving a molar forward
There should be no nerve damage by moving a second molar into a first molar position. You will need to have a TAD(Temporary Anchorage Device)placed first to use as an anchor to move the tooth forward without moving the front teeth back.
