Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are several things that cause pain in the teeth and gums, including cavities, tooth decay, accumulation of pus, injury to the jaw joints, viral infections, fungi, gum injuries, growing teeth, damaged fillings, and gum shrinkage.
In your case, the condition occurs the first time it could be due to hormonal changes that are taking place in your body from breastfeeding. For some women, hormonal changes can increase blood flow to the cavity of the tooth, making it easier for inflammation, swelling and canker sores to occur, especially if the injury is either due to sharp edges of food or brushing too hard. Other factors can be due to poor oral health, or low endurance.
Our advice to you is that you should first check your teeth with the dentist, so that you can find out if there are any holes, infected, rot, injured, or so on. Also tell your doctor that you are breastfeeding so that the medicine that is most suitable for you is chosen. By looking at it directly it will be clearer whether a filling or even a tooth extraction is needed.
In the meantime, you should still brush your teeth, but replace your brush with a brush with finer bristles, and gently brush with up and down movements, not left and right. In addition, also use dental floss and mouthwash to reach the narrow gaps. Be careful in chewing, and avoid foods and drinks that are too hot or too cold at first. So, hopefully answering your question.
