Is tooth extraction safe while breastfeeding exclusively?
Can I have my tooth extracted while breastfeeding exclusively. Baby refuses to take the bottle. What type of medication am I allowed to take after extraction and how will aneasthethic affect my baby. I'm in excrutiating pain at the moment and desperately need to have the extraction done. Eagerly waiting for a reponse. Thank you
thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. you can go ahead with extraction. if i am your treating doctor i would suggest you to take plain penicillin and paracetamol which are the safest drugs that can be given in all conditions unless you are allergic to that drug. get it removed and take the drug after feeding your baby. take antibiotics for three days and take pain killer only if it is necessary. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
