I had a tooth removal appointment fews days ago. The dentist only removed half of the tooth and one root is still inside. He used lots of force to pull my tooth. Then he referred me to a specialist clinic for surgery but they said to me that they can't do anything because remaining root is very close to the nerve. If the nerve gets damaged then I will loose Tongue, jaw and lips sensation. Now I have unbearable pain in all my teeth. I have no idea what to do. Please can someone help me that what I can do for pain and remaining tooth?

Are you taking antibiotics? Go back to your original dentist and get them to check you over for dry socket.
