Q.

Extracted tooth left part of root

I had a " root canal treated"  molar extracted, it broke in pieces as it was being pulled. Also some of the root remained, the dentist would have cut it out but it was to close to my sinus cavity. What is the risk if I leave it, will it cause another abscess again?

It is possible that another abscess can occur however this is not always the case.
See a maxillofacial surgeon for an opinion.

Because the employers are pnyaig a HUGE chunk of the bill usually 50% to 90%. It doesn''t actually cost LESS, it costs MORE. You just don''t SEE it, because they''re footing the tab. As to why it doesn''t cost the same per person . . . because with an employer, the healthy young employees pay the same as the old sick ones, they AVERAGE the rate. So the rate for an employee might be $500 a month (and the employer pays $300 of it). When the healthy young employee shops around and buys private coverage, it might cost them $125 a month less even than their share. But when the old sick employee shops around, it might cost THEM $1200 a month. Health insurance, after all, is ONLY sharing of cost . Everyone pools their money, and the claims are paid out of the pool. The more claims that get submitted, the more the rates have to go up.
