The dentist may use anesthetic such as 0.3ml lidocaine with 1:100, 000 epinephrine. Would this interact/ have problems with my heart or BP medication.
Little concern: Stress form the procedure, particularly if you were not numb, would cause your body to release more Epinephrine then what is in the local anesthetic.
