Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim can in-fact be used to treat a tooth infection, but it is not usually the first choice for dental infections since many of them respond better to other alternatives, such as Penicillin and Amoxicillin.

I would also consider speaking with a dentist about the underlying cause of this infection, just to make sure it's not something that will be reoccurring.

I hope you get well soon!
