[Tex/LaTex] Typesetting nth roots when n is long


Trying to take the nmth root of a results in nm overflowing off the radical sign. How can I extend the "tail" of the radical sign to contain all of nm?

The $nm$th root of $a$.

Answers to similar questions suggest using the amsmath package to adjust the placement of nm, but nm is too long to fit in the space provided.
