I have to have a widsom tooth out and would like to be sedated
due to a previous bad experience with extraction. However, I'm a nursing mother to a 9 month old. How will the anesthesia affect my baby? I'm nursing 3 times a day: 6:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m., and 9:00 p.m.
How long will it be in my system? Any help you could give would be appreciated since many dentists around here have no idea about the effects on nursing. ...Angela in PA
It depends on what agents are used to sedate you. Your baby will most
likely ingest what you do. Usually it takes a few days for these meds to be eliminated from your body. I would not recommend it.
