In brief: Pediatrician advice

Nursing moms can have wisdom teeth extracted with either local or general anesthesia.
Local anesthesia will require to modifications. If you want general anesthesia, drugs will stay in your system for a number of hours. Best protocol is to pump and refrigerate enough milk for 24 hours. After that, you can resume breast feeding as normal.
