Dental work and nursing

I have to get an old filling replaced and crown put on next week. Does anyone know if I have to wait a certain amount of time after the procedure to nurse my 5 mo? As far as I know they'll be using novocaine and whatever the initial topical numbing agent is. I just need to make sure I have enough pumped milk if I have to wait a few hours before nursing. Thanks!

You may nurse immediately. No need to wait. The most dangerous thing at the dentist's office is the bill for services!

Awesome! Thank you! That's what I thought but wanted to double check. I definitely do fear that bill though! ;)
