Ideally you should wait 24 hours between cocaine use and dental work. So in my opinion – you are borderline – either talk to your dentist about it or be safe and postpone.

Mostly coke or cocaine gets out of system in 12 hours but can take as long as 72 hours to get out of system if heavy intake is done.

So if you get local anaesthesia after 24 hours then it will not cause any deleterious effects.

But to be on a safer side you can wait for 72 hours, however discuss with your dentist and get your appointment planned accordingly..

Hope this helps..
