CAN BACTRIM BE USED FOR AN INFECTED TOOTH?
Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

Yes, since batcrim is an antibiotic ( containing sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) it can be used for a tooth related infection. Antibiotics act by either killing bacetria or stopping thier growth.

But before taking it please check out this resource for more information on this drug, particularly the precautions and side effects.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.

Dr. Behere.
