Hello,
I have an extraction coming up for bottom molar 18. I’m a very anxious patient when it comes to needles and the numbing sensation. I’ve never gotten numb for the bottom teeth before. (I go as far as to get all of my fillings done without getting numb) I am very nervous for my throat to feel numb. Will this happen??

I also have a heart condition and am worried about my heart racing and palpitations. my oral surgeon advised they would use less epi than normal but that they do need to use a little bit.
