  • For the extraction of the roots of the tooth the dentist has to first take the X-ray to see the length and the status of the roots. Sometimes the roots are curved or fused to the bone and they are very deep . In such cases the surgical extraction has to be done which involves bone cutting. But if the roots are easily accessible then they can be easily extracted. So visit your dentist and discuss the treatment.
