I am having tooth pain, and as much as I hate the thought of it, I think I may have a cavity, or twogreensad.gif  I would love to avoid the dentist at least until I am fnished with breastfeeding but I don't think I can do that.  I really need to get in there to get checked out because I know how important dental health is.  Anyway, I am worried about the impact of cavity filling and Novocaine, or other numbing solutions they may possibly use, on breastfeeding.  Are there any concerns with any of this?  Should I get the white (resin) composite filling vs. the silver amalgam which I have always gotten in the past? I don't even know if our insurance would cover the resin and it doesn't sound as if it is very durable.

 

I'm just worried the effect it may have on BFing and would love to hear some feedback! TIA.

Yes, you should get the white fillings. Avoiding mercury is sensible for anyone, not just moms who are breastfeeding.

 

I would not worry about the numbing medication. I had a wisdom tooth taken out when dd was four months old and nursed her right afterwards.
