In brief: Yes, anxiety control
Yes, Halcion (triazolam) is a very good mild anxiolytic to take before any dental procedure if you have dental anxiety.
There are also several other medications that are mild anxiolytics used for dental anxiety. Ask your dentist what he thinks is right for you.

In brief: It's a sleeping pill
Better to take a minor tranquilizer--can get delirium & memory loss with halcion (triazolam).
