Does a hit tooth almost always die?

I fell on my face ice skating two days ago and hit one of my upper front teeth directly on the ice. I've read plenty about teeth dying after trauma. Is this usually the case?

I went to the dentist today and she said the x-rays looked good. It is ever so slightly pushed back and not wiggly. The tooth responded well to the ice and electricity tests. However, she said there is a chance it could die within the next year anyhow. She was guarded about telling me it would all be OK. I'm just wondering has anyone whacked a tooth pretty good and NOT had it die later?
