Can you tell me about epinephrine stimulates a1 and b2 receptors. does this lead to both vasoconstriction and vasodilation?
Adrenergic receptors: Hi. Epi stimulates vascular alpha-1 and beta-2 receptors, so yes, there is both vasoconstriction & vasodilation (so you see pulse width widen).

One option for you that avoids local use would be to have general anesthesia. Not a common choice for root canal, but maybe appropriate in your case. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Close supervision: This is a strange question. IV epinephrine is typically only used in an ICU setting for people who are critically ill. It must be given under constant supervision, as too much will cause death. Epinephrine is also used for severe allergic reactions causing anaphylaxis.
