Suggest treatment for gum infection

I have advanced periodontitis: bone loss pretty far on upper front teeth. One of my front teeth had become really loose & not wanting to have it pulled I opted for splinting it 2 wks ago. Right after my splinting, i noticed a small Mount of white pus between my front teeth, when my tongue would hit the roof of my mouth behind them. It happened couple of times but I thought maybe I wasn't brushing well enough. Then yesterday lots of white pus pushed out. Tonight after hot tubbing greenish-yellow puss was pouring out above 3 of my teeth...please help. I am on vacation & tried two emergency dental calls only to have NO one return my call tonight.

thanks for your query, i have gone through your query, the gum infection, bone loss, mobility, pus discharge, could be secondary to deposits around the teeth. if the teeth are very much mobile then there is no meaning in retaining those teeth. the splinting will help to retain the teeth for some days. its better to get your teeth removed and go for fixed or removable prosthesis. you can start with antibiotics after consulting the physician and so saline gargling. i hope my answer will help you, take care.
