  • Dear PATRICIA, I would recommend you to take it out as broken root fragment is considered as an outside body and may lead to infection. Also it might hamper the normal healing process...

  • I got my wisdom teeth pulled out on tuesday, dentist had difficulties with one tooth lower right side, my tooth was impacted he broke it in 3 pieces took out 2, left one. He explained it was too deep and did not want to risk nerve damage is this normal? that a piece of tooth is still there? any advise?

  • Dear CATIE, Pain due to wisdom tooth requires clinical management. Thought the antibiotics can relive the pain but only for a specific period. So, i would suggest you to visit a dentist, get the Xray done and see if the tooth is not in its normal position then better get it removed..
