    Would Halcion work during dental surgery?

    I am having an apicoectomy next week and am not very good with pain. My dentist said he will have me take that before the surgery, then of course numb my upper gumline.  Do you think this will be enough for me to withstand the surgery?  I have had crowns, bridges, etc. with the normal numbing in a dentist's office.  My other option would be to pay for an anesthesiaoligist at $1100 at that time.  Do you think taking Halcion along with numbing would be sufficient?
