Over time one of my molars has all but chipped away. All that is now left is roots. Now my gum is starting to grow over what is left of the tooth. I know this sounds bad, and it is. I am in pain, at the time I started to have this tooth issue I did not have a job which also meant no dental insurance. It was just something I could not afford. Now I have a job, but this pain is starting to be a issue. I wanted to know if there is just a thing as root extraction. I know there is no way of saving what little is left.
