Epinephrine: Discuss your concerns with the oral surgeon before your appointment. Epinephrine is naturally produced by your body. Your extractins can be done safely.

Communicate: Inform your Dentist or preferably specialist Oral Surgeon about all health abnormalities. Your practitioner can use a local anesthetic that does not contain epinephrine.
