Q.

Tooth absess

When one has a tooth absess does it mean that one has to take out the tooth . My sister has a tooth absess on the front two teeth and she says she has been advised to pull them out . ( apparently theres is an absess with some pus in it ) is there no other way that this can be remedied without taking the front tooth out ??

No, in most cases a root canal treatment can be performed.
