i had to have a crown when i was 8 months preggo and was given lidocaine (with epinephrine) and was told by the dentist and my very trusted midwife that it was fine.

I told my dentist that I was nursing, and she gave me an alternative to whatever it is they usually give (she was repairing a filling). It was definitely not as effective, and she could not drill as deep as she needed to. She felt she was able to do a good enough job for it to hold out for a while (hopefully until I'm not nursing anymore).
