I need a cavity filled and I had other ones filled and a root canal with no problems from the anesthetic. Last year I took an antibotic and went into shock and now I'm scared with anything like this. What are my chances of my throat closing from the lidocaine?

  • If there was no problem with lidocaine before then that means you are not allergic to lidocaine and can get the treatment done without any apprehension but still you can discuss your problem with dentist who can do the allergy test before giving you anethesia or he can give you the substitute to which you are not allergic. Sometimes it is not because of anesthesia but because of anxiety and fear of dental procedure that you react in such a way.
