I have some old black roots left in my gums, I need a root extraction.

Is this something a dentist can do, or should I get an oral surgeon to do it? And will this procedure require a few stitches? ...Visitor from TX

Start with a dentist in the event the removals are easy to perform.

If they are convoluted, complex or otherwise require extensive surgery, the dentist will refer you to a surgeon. Whether or not stitches will be necessary depends on how complex the extraction is.

Be sure the dentist can show that no broken root tips are left behind.
