I had a tooth extraction 5/6 weeks ago which broke leaving root remaining. Currently awaiting surgery to extract root. The original extraction appears to have healed fine.
Any advice on potential problems if I were to leave the roots without extraction?

Good day
If the tooth was vital ( still had nerve tissue in), there is a chance that the remaining piece could become infected and form an abscess.
There is also a chance that it won't.
Do you have any xrays you can share?
