4 months ago, I had extracted my third molar. But tooth extraction failed and only crown was removed and root could not extracted. So at that time dentist has suggested me to wait for 4 to 6 month because it will supra erupt. Since 4 months I am not having any issues, no pain and no any unusualness. So is it necessary to extract it again or I should wait until I don't feel any problem.
Remaining root part may or may not cause pain depending upon the oral cleanliness you will maintain. It is preferable to get it removed since there is chance of infection. Get an x Ray done and get it removed by an experienced dental surgeon.
