Brief Answer:
Te best is amoxicillin and metronidazole!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

SMz-TMP is not a good drug for tooth ache. we generally prefer amoxicilin and metronidazole. I will recommend that you rather talk to your dentist and get the necessary antibiotics for this.

In the interim, you could add tylenol 1000mg every 6-8hours for pain relief pending a dentist appointment.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
