Will a tooth be stable without one of its roots after root resection? I want to know if my tooth will be stable after getting my scheduled root resection in a week or so. Will it be ok and not move around after the surgery?
For root resection i make sure that the remaining root is a long tooth with great foundation and good bone and soft tissue support! it goes without saying that the tooth will loose one of its root supports and thus will be compromised but the answer to the longevity remains with the remaing root and its support the kind of occlusal forces (bite) , your hygiene, and of course the expertise of your dentist in this arena.
