The last couple of years when I have dental work done I have a reaction to the novacaine. My heart races for about 30 seconds and my legs feel a little weak. So the dentist try the other med that is like novacaine but it did the same thing. So now he wants me to see a oral surgeon. This is really going to cost a lot. I would rather just go to a dentist and let him do it. Has anybody else had this problem with reactions? Thanks
Novacaine has epinepherine in it, it does cause your heart to race and can make you feel funny. Me dentist always uses Carbocaine on me, which does not have any epinepherine in it. Do you know what your dentist used the second time? I never had a reaction from the Carbocaine until yesterday. I made me feel very light headed and my head was buzzing for a few minutes. I've had it so many times and this never happened before. And, it happened yesterday with both injections. Maybe it was where I got the injection that caused it?
The carbocaine made my heart race and made me feel funny. The dentist said it wasn't suppose to but it did. Now this new dentist said maybe I should go to a oral surgeon to have my 5 teeth pull. The cost is going to be very expensive. The dentist would have cost under half the price and I would have to be put under. If this is going to be safer I will have it done.
hi just wanna tell u i had same experience wot is happening is the injection has adrenalin in it and sometimes when ur injected it goes in to the blood stream thus adrenalin kicks in. this started panic attacks off in me, my dentist said he would giv me injections with no adrenalin in in future but i aint been bak lol good luck ask about adrenalin free injection
The epinepherine causes your blood vessels to restrict so you stay numb longer. I was given something without it for the same reason as you. My heart did not race but I kept getting un-numb, so he kept giving me more. I felt very sick afterward. He was putting a temporary crown on my # 12. When I went back and had the permanent crown on, he only had to get me numb once because it was a shorter procedure, but I had a even worse reaction and went in the next day for him to see how my eyelids were swollen. That was last Fall and now my left sinus has enlarged, I snore worse, I am allergic to my skincare I have used for years. When I go out in the sun, my cheek swells and turns red. My short term memory is getting worse. I'm very concerned and am not getting any answers. So, my advice to you is to go to the oral surgeon and let him put you under.
