I just had my teeth pulled a week ago. And it turns out the roots are still left. Is there any effect of remaining teeth on gum closure? Because instead of closing my gums, the front part is even more open.

Hello Theresia Sianturi,

Previously, did you know about the remaining roots from the dentist who examined you? If this is the case, the presence of tooth roots that are left behind after tooth extraction can mainly be influenced by factors such as the condition of the fragile teeth or the position of the roots of the teeth that do not allow for complete extraction, for example the roots of teeth that are very close to the sinus cavity or nerves. Usually when the root of a tooth is left with an indication, it is made so small that it allows it to be absorbed (absorbed by the body) over time. Tooth root left behind due to an accident/without indication increases the risk of infection in the area of ​​the extracted tooth, swelling of the gums, bad breath, severe pain, and the formation of cysts in the gums.

Recovery time after tooth extraction depends on the size and type of tooth, but on average, recovery occurs within 1 week. If indeed you are still experiencing complaints such as bleeding or other symptoms as mentioned above, it's a good idea for you to return to the dentist who handles it so that your current condition can be re-evaluated, including discussing with your doctor about the next treatment for the remaining root of the tooth. The doctor may suggest supporting examinations such as x-rays/re-panoramic to see the position of the root of the tooth and plan an operation to remove the remaining root of the tooth under local anesthesia by an oral surgeon.

For now, keep your teeth and mouth clean by brushing your teeth regularly (be careful about brushing the area that has just been extracted), gargling with mouthwash or salt water to get the most out of cleaning up food residue in the area where the extraction was done, and consuming nutritious food to speed up the process. recovery.

I hope this information is helpful.

Regards, dr. Delvira
