How is a root tip removed? That is all that remains of an upper and lower molar on the left. What pain is involved? Should pain killers be prescribed after? Antibotics?

  • I hope it is appropriate for me to comment here. Our product the InventDent root tip extractor is revolutionizing this uncomfortable procedure for dentists worldwide. Three years on the market the root tip remover is finally catching fire and is available at for those who wish to check it out. You will notice that Dr. Ritz mentions the duration of the procedure increases. This can throw an office into chaos and wreak havoc with the schedule and really upset the office manager when they have to turn away patients and reschedule appointments. The InventDent root tip remover changes all that and we hope Dr. Ritz contacts us. We would be happy to send him our product to test it out for himself. Thank you for your comment Dr. Ritz.

  • It depends upon whether the root tip is fused with bone or it is mobile. Some times bone cutting is done to remove the tip. There is no pain as the anasthesia is given but duration of the procedure can increase. If the root tip is infected then antibiotics are given but pain killer has to be given after the removal of the root tip. For more info on tooth extraction you can visit the following
