Since saturday, my wisdom tooth has started hurting. I realised that it started to come out of the gums which explains the pain. Now, I can barely open my mouth. I'm having a hard time to eat as well. I have no idea what to do. I am looking for safe home remedies just to ease the pain for the mean time. I am just a little cautious because I am breastfeeding and I've read that some aren't safe if you're breastfeeding. I want to go to the dentist to get it checked and see what can be done but I can't yet. My partner said that I need to wait for a couple of weeks so he can make sure that he will have enough money if ever it needs to get extracted.
I have been searching online how much they extraction are and wow, they are pretty expensive. I'm not sure how long I can go on with this. But the thing that concerns me more is that, is it safe to get an extraction while breastfeeding? Also, is it okay to breastfeed baby even if I'm in pain from my wisdom tooth? I am just so confused because I don't want to do anything that might affect baby K. Any thoughts?
