    Default Aw man....I think I have a cavity....

    So, I am going to try and go the dentist next week. I *HATE* the dentist, so I usually get the works. Please tell me I can have nitrous oxide and of course the numbing stuff they inject into your gum, I may let them clean my teeth while I am in there so, it could be extended nitrous oxide. Is there anything I need to be wary or careful of? Baby is 9months old and we are still exclusively breastfeeding and have a family bed.

    Thanks!

    I have never had nitrous. But I have had novocaine, which is what numbs you. If you have any questions regarding medicine or medical produces while nursing, I would suggest calling www.infantrisk.com

    This should also be helpful. Good luck with the dental work.

    Nitrous is fine. I hate the dentist too. Good luck! http://www.kellymom.com/health/illness/dentalwork.html

    and don't let the dentist try to tell you not to nurse or to pump and dump...mine did. Totally not necessary.

    This. Many dentists don't want to go on record saying ANYTHING is safe while breastfeeding, and will play it very conservative.
