So I have a ICD (defibrillator) and was wondering if I can only take novocaine with out epinephrine because of spells of V tach .I don't want to have a spell while at dentist and lidocaine has epi in it so I also worried about bleeding to much. Anyone have this problem or know any?
I was wondering if I have a ICD implanted if can have teeth pulled?

I would see the cardiologist but I've not seen my heart dr. In 3 years almost nor had my checkups because of the hospital , they wouldn't do the implant without insurance so they sent me to indigent care and every thing was fine I had it done and then the indigent care said I live in a nother county. now the county that the hospital is is the county my address is but come to find out that I live a half a mile in the next county so they cut me off and Sent the district attorney after me to put me in jail for fraud and to get thier money back , now with this said I've not been able to go to the dr. As I'm disabled but can't draw SSI I've also had 7 collapsed lung and top of one lung took out. So I need oxygen. Now my teeth have gone bad to worse and the dentis will not do anything because of being scared of my defibrillator and lungs. So that's why I was asking. What could be used other then epinephrine .I will have to see a different heaet dr. out of state to not get back on the grid where I live.
