Im about to have several teeth pulled by oral surgeon. The assistant said they can put me under with a pill for procedure if i feel i need. What kind of drug is that?

Hi Connie, there are many drugs that are used to calm people down during a procedure, but I haven’t heard of a pill to put people under before. We have an article about oral sedation, so maybe that gives you some info before one of our dentists replies:

If you are in the US, it’s likely to be Halcion. Why not give your dentist a call and check with them?

Seconding that. I'm in the US, and they wanted to give me Halcion. Also, seconding the idea of calling your dentist to ask.

Good luck with everything, and I hope your procedure goes well.
