Bactrim is used to treat a variety of infections, but only when the infection is strongly suspected of being caused by susceptible bacteria. It is mainly used to treat Urinary Tract Infections,Acute Otitis Media, Chronic Adult Bronchitis, and Adult Traveler's Diarrhea. It is seldom used to treat a dental abscess.

Yes, many dentist and doctors prescribe Bactrim for individuals with dental abscesses. Since dental abscesses are infections and Bactrim is an anti-biotic. There are generic forms available too so those who are looking for something more economical. When you take Bactrim remember to drink six to eight glasses of water.

Your dentist will prescribe the appropriate antibiotic for the type of infection you have. Antibiotics are designed to target specific types of infection. When an antibiotic is prescribed, it should be taken as directed through the last dose. Never save antibiotics to use later to self-medicate.
