I'm assuming most of the numbing medications used by dentists have the same ingredients. If your tooth isn't that bad, maybe you could try it "cold turkey?" If not, maybe there is a medication they could use to make you sleepy enough where you don't care about the pain... "laughing gas" I forgot the technical name. They could also put you to sleep for the procedure. But you definitely MUST tell your dentist exactly what happened to you! Rather than a dentist, I would make an appointment with an oral surgeon. Under the circumstances, they are better prepared in the event of an emergency. Your case is very rare. Be careful and investigate thoroughly before you have any procedure done.
I hope you get your tooth fixed soon. Good luck to you and be extra careful!
