Pain relief: We would need more info to answer your question in detail. Local anesthetics (numbing medicines) can be injected into a specific area, such as around a tooth, to numb it. Other types of anesthetic injections such as nerve blocks can provide anesthesia for some types of surgical procedures. An epidural injection can help with pain relief for back pain, or for having a baby.

Anesthetic: Many local anesthetics come without epi. One is called Carbocaine and it takes a few minutes more to kick in however it has no epi and last a shorter time (1.5 hrs). If your dentist uses a buffer like onpharma you can get apprx 6000 times more active ingredient. I use onpharma with all my locals and it works wonderfully well.
