4 doctors agree
In brief: Probably not
Halcion (triazolam) is a benzodiazepine, but it is designed and marketed for sleep.
It is used for other purposes, but is not likely to provide the effect you want. Consult with your dentist about this.

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Halcyon is a commonly used medication in many protocols for oral conscious sedation.
It can be used in combination with other medications to produce the desired effect. It is not intended as a deep sedative, but can be used to control dental anxiety in all procedures. It causes relaxation and amnesia, so it can be effectively used for wisdom tooth removal.
