Tell your dentist: because they might want to avoid local anesthetic with epinepherine, as the combination could cause a dangerous rise in heart rate. The bigger issue at hand is the fact that you're smoking crack in the first place. Please seek treatment for your addiction issues. Crack is very dangerous, and if you keep doing it, your health issues will be much worse than local anesthetic.
