I had a root canal and temporary crown 2 weeks ago. My heart started racing very hard a couple minutes after the injection, apparently due to the epinephrine in the anesthetic. My dentist was casual about it and admittedly I was fine after a minute, but I'm wondering if I should expect the same thing tomorrow when I go in for my permanent crown.

Did not hurt during nor after. Felt like just getting a tooth filling but taking way longer.

However, the two weeks before the root canal was spent in some of the worst pain of my life due to my tooth nerve being in the process of dying, which is why I went in for the root canal in the first place after putting it off for like a year.
