I have an infected tooth and I have some antibiotic that I never taken called sulfamethoxazole timp, can I use them? ## Hello, Tete! Sorry about the tooth. You need to see a dentist, even if you already have an antibiotic to take, if there is a dental infection present, it will only help temporarily. Since the antibiotic cannot fix the underlying cause of the infection, such as a deep cary or receding gum line, it will just keep returning. Additionally, there is a chance that it isn't an actual infection and then it would not be appropriate to use an antibiotic and that creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria.

I have a really bad toothache that I think is abcessed. Will sulfamethoxazole help the infection ## Hello, Tammy! How are you? Yes, this is an antibiotic, which can help with various types of bacterial infections. However, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor or dentist has confirmed the presence of an infection and prescribed it for you. One thing that could create a problem is if this is just the leftovers from another infection, you may not have enough to properly eradicate the infection, which creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. And another issue is that if you don't see a dentist, the underlying problem that caused the infection will still be there and the infection will just continue to return. Are there any other questions or concerns? ... ...

Can smz/tmp tab treat mouth sores ## Hi Linda, This question has an interesting response because Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim can actually cause sores, ulcers, or white spots in the mouth or on the lips, as a rare but possible side effect. If these mouth sores that you're describing are related to an infection, I can confirm that this medication is also used for treatment of both tooth and gum infections; although it does not specify if mouth sores are included in this category of treatment. If I were in your shoes I would consider trying clove essential oil for any dental or mouth related infections or sores. There are also a good number of natural home remedies which you can find online, if these are identified as canker sores. Please post back with any additional information s... ...

I have an abscess tooth will this medication work for this or is it used for a abscess tooth? Sulfameth/trimethoprim 800/160 tabs ## Sulfamethoxazole with Trimethoprim is an antibiotic, it's a generic for Bactrim, so it may help with the infection that causes an abscess, but that will only be a temporary fix.
