Oral Surgery For Root Removal?
I want to ask. r nIf you want to do an oral surgery to remove the root of the tooth, do you need to be hospitalized and stay a few days in the hospital. nPreviously, thank you for the answers given
Hello Mohammad Syukur,
Remaining root can occur due to cavities, an injury that causes the tooth to break / loose, or due to other things such as incomplete tooth extraction. Left untreated tooth roots can cause various problems such as infections, bad breath, cysts, and other diseases. If it is still viable (alive) and can be repaired, the dentist may consider installing a dental crown. But if it can't be repaired, it needs to be removed to prevent further damage.
Extraction of the remaining root of the tooth is usually performed under local anesthesia, by injecting an anesthetic around the extraction site (nerve block). Using local anesthesia, the patient is conscious and does not require hospitalization. However, if the case is difficult or is accompanied by certain disorders, the doctor may consider general anesthesia or hospitalization.
We recommend that you discuss it with your dentist, because dental abnormalities need to be seen directly to determine the most suitable treatment.
