In brief: Talk to dentist

Either drug can be used to help you, it is best to talk about this with your dentist.
Even though it is stressful just to go to the office to talk, it is very important that you do this so you will be more comfortable getting the dental treatment you need. It is important for you to be able to talk to the dentist and build up trust. This is a process and will talk time to be decrease your fear.

In brief: Both good

Both triazolam and valium are effective oral sedatives for minimal to moderate sedation.
If you have extreme dental fear you may want to talk to your dentist about getting any dentistry needed asleep.
