This large mosasaur tooth was imported from Morroco to China.  It's pretty big but I found the root a bit strange, the root looks like it's carved from the matrix, is the tooth/root real?

Lots of times the roots are made of a plaster matetial, others may be made from bone. Similar to the bone they use for composited jaws and such.

Can't really see the item in your pics very clearly so I can't say one way or another if real or not without better focused close up shots.

Root looks funny to me but better pics would help. The one in my profile pic is a nice example of a real one.

the photos don't properly show the join between crown and root. Some better photos would help in inspecting that area. 

Some straight on close up pictures not at an angle like the ones shown.

Another mosasaur tooth, this one is smaller but it looks very real.

Both teeth look good to me. No sign of compositing.
