My guy has dental phobia...

Hey, my man is going to get dental work this weekend. He had a cavity on his wisdom tooth and was told to have a filling! He has dental phobia and he used to postpone the appointments, intentionally. Now his cavity became deeper and is unable to cure with filling!
We have been to our family doctor yesterday as he wanted to get some pain killers (he wisely avoided visiting dentistry)! After a detailed examination, the doctor suggested a root canal and referred him to nearby sedation dentistry, http://www.rootsonwhytedental......dentistry/ as he found the cavity is deep!
The thing is my boy says, he will go for tooth extraction instead of a root canal after having an online reading about the root canal treatment! He was convinced in the beginning but suddenly had a change of mind!
I know, root canal treatments are quite common and he will be IV sedated for it and won't experience any discomfort during the procedure! And moreover, it is far better than having a tooth extraction at the age of 26!!
I don't know how I'm going to convince him!
If I had a similar experience before, it would have easier for me to convince him! I talked to his dentist and he said they will be using Triazolam to sedate him, but nothing much about the procedure! So I just wonder if someone could share the experience and memories of having oral sedation for the first time!
I'm ready to do anything, just to convince my guy for a root canal!
