The Danger Of Leaving The Root Of The Tooth When Pulling A Tooth?
afternoon, r this way … it’s been almost a month that I often get toothaches … because the teeth are hollow and they are still patched … but it looks like the patch is leaking … so I just feel like it’s silly gt. … after that the toothache continued to recur. r n r r r. yesterday … because it’s been almost a month so I just decided to pull out a tooth … and in fact the doctor had an infection … nnah when I pulled out a tooth this morning … one root was broken … but the doctor said … it’s okay that it will come out by itself … r n r nyg I ask … what is it it’s okay ..? will it come out on its own later?
Hello Nenimila, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Tooth roots that are left behind when you remove the tooth are unlikely to come out on their own. If there is an infection at the root of the tooth, then the tooth root that is left behind must also be removed so as not to become a source of infection in the gums. If there is no protruding part that allows extraction from the outside, then a minor operation may have to be performed to remove the remaining roots.
Furthermore, you will also be advised to install dentures to replace the extracted teeth. If you don't have dentures attached, it is possible that your other teeth will shift and cause your teeth to become even more messy. You can also experience tooth malocclusion (upper and lower teeth not closing properly), eating disorders, to speech disorders.
We recommend that you immediately go to the dentist (not to a dentist) for further evaluation and treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
