Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim is generally used for treating various types of bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections, traveler's diarrhea, and ear infections. The antibiotic is also approved to prevent Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in people with weakened immune systems at risk for the infection. Doctors may also occasionally recommend off-label uses of the drug, such as for treating acne and preventing (instead of treating) various types of infections.

For tooth infections, would recommend to talk with your doc/pharmacist, take care.
