Recall the last time you got numb at the dentist. These are probably memories you try to forget, but give it a whirl.

As you sit there patiently waiting for the inevitable fun part to come, notice how your heart starts to race for a few seconds as if you just had a mini panic attack or burst of caffeine. What just happened?
This is because of an adjuvant in the anesthetic called epinephrine, and it’s designed to be a vasodilator so that the numbing agent can do its job.
