Bit of Root Left in Jaw After Tooth Extraction?

I just had three teeth removed. In the process of removing a molar a very small piece of a root broke off. The dentist said it would not hurt to leave it where it is. Is this OK?

This can happen occasionally. Usually they work out. My husband was having pieces of root work out of his gums for several years after he got his dentures. I have heard of this happening with other people too.

Usually works itself out, but if it gets painful go back to the dentist.
