You may want to use a search engine to look for the word "DentalCavitation" in parentheses.I'm not sure what an unfinished root canal is, except that when I have had root canals they were usually started on one visit and completed on another. Was it started and not finished? When a tooth is pulled, a good oral surgeon should also carefully remove the periodontal ligament and scrape, or curette, the extraction site to remove any and all dead/necrotic bone. As for the root canaled tooth, it may be a goner if the site has become infected. The tooth may need to be extracted and the same clean out procedure done as mentioned above. When you talk to an oral surgeon, be sure he or she is familiar with removal of the periodontal ligament and removing all dead bone before suturing the site.
