Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It should be noted beforehand, that the feeling of sticking in the area of the tooth extraction is not necessarily caused by the incomplete tooth extraction process. This complaint can also appear as part of inflammation in the gums and other areas around the teeth after tooth extraction is done. It could also, this condition occurs due to infection at the site of the tooth extraction, causing pus to accumulate, swollen gums, pain, bleeding that doesn't stop, and various other complaints.
With the competence of a good dentist, the tooth extraction process should rarely leave the root of the tooth as you mentioned. However, this possibility can still occur, especially if there are no adequate facilities, for example a panoramic X-ray, before a tooth extraction is performed.
It needs to be clarified first, how do you know that there is a residual root of the tooth that has not been completely pulled out? Have you checked with the dentist?
If not, we urge you to check with the dentist who previously pulled your tooth. With direct evaluation, the doctor can determine whether your complaint is still a normal part of the recovery process after tooth extraction, or if it is true that your complaint occurred because there was a residual tooth root left. Investigations, such as panoramic x-rays may also be done by the doctor to distinguish these two conditions. If it is true that there are still remaining roots of the teeth left, then of course the root must be extracted. If it is not handled properly, it is feared that the remaining root of the tooth can cause bleeding that will not go away and increase the risk of infection at the site of the tooth extraction. It is also possible that you will be referred to a dentist who specializes in oral surgery for further treatment.
Meanwhile, if you feel pain at the site of the tooth extraction, you can first take a drug containing paracetamol so that the complaint gets better. Always keep your teeth and mouth healthy by regularly brushing your teeth and gargling with salt water. Take care not to brush your teeth too hard or chew foods that are too hard on the side of the tooth extraction in the first 1 to 2 weeks after extraction. It is feared that this can cause the healing process to become obstructed.
Hope it helps ..
