Why is it that when the dentist uses the regular lidocaine it does not work for me but the septocaine does?? What is the difference between the two?
Although the below referenced article may be too technical to be of any use, in summary the smaller molecular size of the active ingredient in Septocaine may allow for better absorption into the bone for local infiltration. You may have really dense bone in the areas that needed treatment.

Dentists can usually judge each case in advance and recommend to the patient whether or not they think local anesthesia is necessary. ...Read more
I got lidocaine at my dentist and my hands started shaking. Later I looked at my lip and it was dropping will it go away and is this normal?
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.
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.
That said I do try to error on the side of caution depending on the heart condition by not using the maximum dose (approximately 8 full injections) and breaking up multiple procedures over several appointments. ...Read more

What's in numbing drops that optometrists use that makes your eye numb? Is it similar to lidocaine that dentists use in your mouth? I'm just curious.
