Q.

Stuck Root

My back tooth broke of when I was chewing on Biltong...it broke of completely into the gum but my root is still stuck in my gums...It doesnt pain yet but I'm scared it will eventually. Anything I can do...Will a dentist be able to remove my root? Note that there is no tooth to pull on, it broke off...
Thanks...
