Even thoigh there is no swelling or pain,there are still large roots that are still in the bone under the gum that need to be removed.it is a simple an inexpensive procedure to extract these roots. you should make an appontment with a dentist or oral surgeon ASAP to have this done.They can cause swelling and bone loss.
