I realize this answer is late ... and yes, you can take Levaquin for an infected tooth.

Levaquin is in a group of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. It fights bacteria in the body.

Levaquin is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin, sinuses, kidneys, bladder, or prostate (and can also be used for tooth infections). It is also used to treat bacterial infections that cause bronchitis or pneumonia, and to treat people who have been exposed to anthrax.
