Dr. Ronald Achong

Yes: That is fine. Usually novocaine is not used anymore. More common local anesthetics are lidocaine, marcaine, polocaine and carbocaine.
Dr. Scott Harwood
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 46 years experience
Yes: No contraindication for the use of local anesthetics.
Dr. Scott Greenhalgh
Dentistry 34 years experience
Yes: Wisdom teeth problems can cause other jaw pain, headaches or in some cases ear ringing. See your dentist right away. Sometimes ear-ringing (tinnitus) can be caused by teeth clenching. You also need to be prepared to see your physician to check your ears, because sometimes these are separate problems.
