Hi, don't worry. Pus can be due to superficial infection in gums also. First we need to find the cause of infection only then we can decide upon the treatment. It is possible to treat and remove infection without removing implants. Visit your dentist for complete oral check-up then he can decide upon treatment. For any queries feel free to ask.

Treatment depends on severity of infection. But can be cured with teeth cleaning n antibiotic therapy if it is in initial stage
