I had a tooth removed but some of the root is still stuck in my gum, would it have to be cut out?
It's been like that for a while and doesn't hurt at all.

Sometimes but it really depends. Sometimes if it stays there it can cause infection. Only a dentist can tell you for sure by looking at the gums and the xray of the remaining portion of the tooth. Good luck!

Well. although I'm not a certified dentist, it sounds as if that would have to be cut out. Best luck to you!

Yes, you'll likely have to have it surgically removed.
Messy job, but you'll be fine.
Get it done as soon as you can

What did your dentist say when he removed the tooth? I would seek advice if I were you.

It's probably more uncomfortable than anything else isn't it? Like irritating to the tongue. Go back to the dentist and he/she'll probably make a good assessment for your. Most likely it will need to come out, but depending on the fragment size, your gum mightn't need to be cut, just numbed up!


naiobe
are you sure that it's the root?maybe just bony spicules/bone remnants.that happens when dentists fail to clean and pinch the extraction site after pulling the tooth out.bone expands when tooth is being extracted due to dentists' need to luxate the tooth with a forcep.best to have your dentist check on it so he can either:
1. pull out the remaining root (if there is)
2. file the bone to remove bony spicules
3. or remove bone remnants
x-rays will best reveal what's under the gums.
goodluck

We have an instrument that I call a "Magic Wand" that can often tease out root tips without a surgical approach. Some know what this is and some don't. I can't say if your dentist knows or not, so perhaps you'd have to have surgery.

its best to seek dental advice, i have had a tooth removed before but none of the root was left behind so im not sure this is normal, check with your dentist to make sure everything is OK, its better to be safe then sorry.

Firstly it depends as to why you had it removed in the first place! If there was as abscess present you may need to have it removed, as the affected root (apex) may still cause problems in the future. If this is not the case i suggest you leave it, as in many cases the root will surface in time, and will be able to be removed by yourself. Many many people have retained roots, that never cause them any problems. Hope this helps.


Sandy
It depends on how big the root is. Sometimes, if just a small piece is left, that leftover bonechip works it way to the surface over time, however a large piece of root should not have been left in, or u should have been referred to an oral surgeon, who most definitely would surgically remove it. Probably not a huge deal for him. If the root was infected and it was left in, then the infection will spread. Take care of it ASAP. Lots of luck

THAT IS SO WEIRD I SEE THIS BECAUSE MY SISTER HAS ACTUALLY GONE DENTIST TODAY, SHE HAD A ROOT LEFT BEHIND AND DEVELOPED DRY SOCKET, VERY PAINFUL. SHE GOT PUT ON THE LIST TO HAVE IT REMOVED BUT BECAUSE IT STOPPED HURTING SHE DIDNT BOTHER GOING BACK AND NOW ITS PLAYING UP AGAIN SO I WOULD GET IT REMOVED EVEN IF YOU HAVE NO PAIN. PEOPLE DO SAY YOU CAN HAVE IT LEFT THERE WITH NO TROUBLE BUT I WOULDNT TAKE THE CHANCE, SORRY JUST NOTICED THIS IS ALL IN CAPITALS.

My mum still has the roots in from two teeth. Shes had it for a number of years. It's never got infected so the dentist said its better just to leave it rather that cause her any more pain. Just make sure you keep an eye on it incase it gets infected.
