Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You can go for tooth extraction in a week or two after child birth as the amount of local anesthesia that can reach the breast milk is very less and does not cause any serious complication.
  • However, you should once consult a neonatologist or your obstetrician and gynecologist to confirm depending on the medical health of your newborn. And then, you can proceed for extraction without any worries.

All the best for your delivery.
