Answer 1
June, 2021

Unlike dental methods used two decades ago, modern technologies significantly reduce the complexity and trauma of any surgical procedures. In your case, the operation will be more difficult than the usual extraction, but this is a manipulation for which conduction anesthesia is enough and a maximum of half an hour of work of an experienced specialist. It is important to understand that the root still needs to be removed, even if it does not bother you, as this can cause problems in the future.

The complexity of the operation does not depend on the thickness of the gums, but on the location of the root and the condition of the periodontal tissues. Technical difficulties can arise if the root of the back teeth needs to be removed because it is more difficult for the dentist to work and has to saw out the remnants of the root. To clarify the complexity of the operation, the dentist will order an x-ray of the jaw. Usually the root is removed with forceps. If it is located deep, the doctor uses an elevator, which pushes it into the hole.

In the upper jaw, the roots are not pulled out, but twisted with special tools so as not to damage the maxillary sinus. If the root is strongly rejected, it is sawn and taken out in parts.

Hello.

Most likely yes, if, as you indicate 1 cm, then it will not be easy enough. Everything again depends on the experience of the surgeon and the time it will take, and so the problem is solved.

Answer 4

The complexity of this procedure is higher than that of a simple tooth extraction. But it is necessary to remove the root in order to avoid problems in the future in the treatment and prosthetics of teeth.
