Yes. You can restore the database from backup or repair the database using eseutil. If you do not have the transaction logs from the last backup or since the database failure then you will loose all the data since the last backup or the data the cannot be recoevered in the database repaired as the transaction logs contain the information that has not been committed to the database.

depends on the database state, if the state is clean shutdown then the logs are not required.
