Side Effects and Risks of Novocaine

Although Novocaine is slowly being replaced it remains one of the most commonly used drugs for dental procedures. From a simple filling to the extraction of teeth, Novocaine is the perfect anaesthetic as it acts quickly and its effects wear off in a short time. However, there can be side effects and risks attached for some patients. These include:

– Headaches

– Dizziness

– Drowsiness

It should be noted that “these effects are usually mild and wear off within a few hours” but if any of these conditions persist they should be immediately bought to the attention of the dentist. A full article on the effects of Novocaine can be found at
