cefuroxime is a cephalosporin antibiotic .It is used to treat infections.

It can be given for the control of infections in dental abscess.

However,an abscessed tooth would require root canal treatment.

If the tooth is badly broken down and if the dentist feels that it cannot be restored to function ,you will have to get it removed to prevent recurrent infections and other complications.
