Dentists in any case do their best to preserve the tooth. If the crown is destroyed or fell out, and the root is preserved in the gum, then it should be removed. Removal of the remnants of the root of the tooth has the following indications:
- the presence of cracks and damage;
- inability to install a tab, a pin for prosthetics;
- inflammation of the surrounding tissues.
If a person has a rotten tooth and severe aching pains, you should immediately consult a doctor. The indications also include: the appearance of acute pain while eating, the discharge of pus, blood. Mechanical trauma is also the reason for the extraction of the roots of the teeth of the upper jaw or lower jaw.
