I have a tooth ache and was going to take bactrim ds. will it work for this type of infection?
4 Nov 2009
Bactrim DS isn't usually prescribed by dentists for tooth infections, but I once had an absess tooth and my regular doctor gave me Bactrim DS for a UTI and he told me that it would help with the infection. If you take it and there is no relief, I would definately contact your dentist, so that the ache doesn't turn into an ugly infection/root canal. Good luck!
