QUESTION: Dr. Barajas, what causes a residual root and what consequence can it bring?
– Cristian Fernández, Chihuahua –
Let us start by saying a residual root is a fragment of dental root remaining in the mouth after a dental piece loses part of its structure for any cause, looking like a missing tooth.
Some of the causes may be:
- – Chronic and extended decay
- – A previous endodontics treatment of a tooth without prosthetic rehabilitation
- – Wearing out due to tooth grinding
- – Direct trauma
If not taken care of, it may have consequences from tooth movement to make up for the new space to infection and tumors or cysts. It is best to visit your dentist regularly in order to avoid these problems.
