  • So many factors decides whether the surgery is needed or the roots can be extracted  without the surgery. If the root is quite deep and is akylosed to the bone then the surgery is needed to remove the root. But if the root is not very deep and it is mobile then some tmes surgery is not needed. but in most of the cases where the roots are broken in the gums surgery has to be done to remove them.
