Hello! That is a lot of anesthetic to be allergic to. What is your allergic response that happens with these? Has septocaine been tried? Or possibly seeing a sedation dentist??
The first step I would recommend for you to do would be to make an appointment with an allergy specialist. That way the dr can test you for the types of anesthetic that cause significant reactions versus those that have more of a side effect and not a true allergy. The allergist is the only way to Safely determine what works for you. The allergist will be able to give your local dentist suggestions on what you can use for treatment. Also people that often are allergic to anesthetic are more appropriately allergic to the preservative within the anesthetic vial and not the actual anesthetic. The allergist would be aware of that possibility, but would be worth mentioning to that individual. Also, as I mentioned one could try prilocaine or septocaine or have your dentist use anesthetic without epinephrine in it. Does that answer your question.
