Problematic wisdom teeth

Hi everyone! Rushing up to the questions, here are some recently made X-rays (12 Dec before and 19 Dec after the extraction try).

The surgeon who made it seemed quite professional to me (almost 20 years of experience) However, he said he did not expect it would be such a complicated procedure. During the 1'30 procedure he was able to cut off the roots and remove some parts of the tooth, as the place was extremely difficult to reach out for him (and he did not want to extract the 7th tooth). Important to mention, that he did not specialize particuraly "in bones", although he specializes in implants.

Right now (~3 weeks after) I'm still feeling a bit of pain in some kind of movements, but it seems to be better every week. So I have several questions regarding my issue:
1) is it safe to live with that dead part of the tooth inside?
2) what to do with the second tooth (from the right side)? can the same procedure (with leaving the rest of the tooth) be done?
3) are there some other methods dealing with this situation I wasn't informed about?

Thank you in advance for your help and time

There is a chance that the residual tooth root and crown, could lead to an abscess formation later on. I would suggest seeing an oral surgeon to remove the residual pieces as well as the opposite and opposing wisdom teeth. Best to see a specialist in case like this.
