Answer:According to the description, these two teeth have not been treated or treated but not satisfactory, resulting in complications of infection, forming a pus in the root of the tooth roots.Although oral medications may stop the pain for some time, this is very unlikely for many reasons: the disease can not be completely reversed if only by medication, the disease will recur many times, and the pus in the jaw will.
