Use the Nitrous: Most dentists are skilled at administering nitrous oxide or "laughing gas" . However if you are female make sure you are not pregnant. Two other compounds to talk to your dentist about would be ketamine or propofol. Ketamine can be given im or IV and Propofol can be given iv. Both compounds are used for sedation frequently.
