Thanks for writing to us.

The broken abscess tooth which has been in your mouth for almost a year can lead into spread of infection into sinuses resulting in pain on face ,jaws etc.

I would advice you to get the tooth extracted as soon as possible.
The pus has to be drained and curetted well.

Take metronidazole and diclofenac sodium tablets to relieve underlying infection.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Get routine dental check-up.

Take care.
