Antibiotic bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is used for abcess in the tooth?

In brief: Very Rarely.

Usually this is not the antibiotic of preference for a tooth abscess.
Nevertheless, your doctor may prescribe another type of antibiotic as he/she considers appropriate given the individual situation of the case including medical history, etc.

In brief: Bactrim/dentistry

Penicilin is the antibiotic of choice for most dental infection(unless the patient has an allergy).
