Lidocaine safe while breastfeeding?

So is lidocaine safe while breastfeeding? I have to get a temporary anchoring device implanted in my gums (I know..ouch!) for my orthodontic treatment.

Yeah any local anesthetic is, doens't enter the bloodstream, so it doens't go into your milk.
I had 4 wisdom teeth pulled while nursing and the "caine" family of anesthetics was my savior

Thanks so much mamas! I'm really nervous about this procedure. I'm not looking forward to having a screw in my gums for 6 months.
