Front tooth fracture
My front tooth was broken at the age of 6 and RCT was done at the age of 13-14 but no cap was fixed, again a treatment was done at 17yrs and a cap was fixed. today PUSS has accumulated and the X-ray shows that the tooth has been fractured from root.

without clinically seeing the case it's not possible to plan a treatment in such cases generally the tooth is extracted if treatment is not possible.

hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. Its necessary to see the case clinically for proper diagnosis and treatment plan. In such a case if the tooth cannot be saved, it needs to be removed. then you can go in for implant or fixed prosthesis.

The prognosis of the tooth can only be confirmed by knowing the extent and location of the crack.. as per your given history it seems that the tooth may not be salvageable (can only be confirmed by having a look at the x-ray), an implant is a great option to restore your tooth..
Next Steps
Visit an endodontist and ask about the prognosis of treatment for saving your tooth..
Health Tips
do not panic.. at most if the tooth can't be saved, you can easily get an implant placed and your aesthetics shall be restored.. Take care.
