Yes, and No. If I were to wait till I was finished breastfeeding, then
chances are the tooth would not be able to be saved by that time considering
it was shortly after she was born and we're now at almost 3 years. Dental
anesthesia is a very safe drug while breastfeeding as far as I know, I'm
sure someone else will have more info.

You can always have them do it without the anesthetics.
And if you're really worried, pump some milk beforehand and feed that
while you pump and dump after having had the anesthetics.

I've had fillings while breastfeeding. Since the local anesthetic
used was considered compatable with breastfeeding and my baby was more
than a couple weeks old, I didn't worry.

Kellymom has a page on dental work and breastfeeding:

Lidocaine is compatible with BF. I've had teeth
pulled and crowns done while BF.
