Yes dentist can remove broken roots

Dr. Thaler is correct. Seek the most qualified surgical specialist for the best quality surgical treatment rather than someone who does surgery part-time.

In brief: Yes

A dentist with a dds or dmd degree can remove teeth, whether they are erupted, impacted or retained roots.
Even though trained, some dentists prefer not to remove teeth or perform oral surgery in their practice and refer their patients who need teeth extracted to oral surgeons.

In brief: Many but not all

A dds and dmd are both dentists with equal training and degrees.
Many dentists extract teeth, even difficult ones that are broken down. However, many dentists refer patients with difficult extractions to an oral surgeon for removal. If you already have a dentist, call and ask him\her. Otherwise get a referral for an oral surgeon.

In brief: Yes

Many dds's can remove broken roots, but not all will be comfortable removing something that may be more difficult.
You may be referred to an oral surgeon, a specialist in the removal of teeth, if your dentist feels that your situation requires the addition skills and experience of an oral surgeon.
