In brief: It works, but

It won't cure the abscess.
You really need to see the dentist and get the abscess treated by removing the source of infection, whether by a root canal or removing the tooth, typically.

If you are not allergic to penicillin then Amoxicillin is a good choice.
However, that it not the definitive treatment. You still have to have the underlying problem treated.
