Anesthesia (IV Sedation)

IV sedation is $180 per 15 minutes for surgeries that do not include sedation.  IV anesthesia is included with most of our surgeries. Sedation is used to relax patients so the surgery is easier for everyone. Sedation does not take away pain, we use local anesthetics injections after the patient is sedated to block pain.

Pre-Sedation Instructions

See our full Oral Surgery Pre-Op Sedation Instructions here.

Failure to follow the instructions will result in surgery being cancelled.

Briefly, patients planning to have IV sedation:

  • Must be fasting for at least eight hours (except for water, you may have small amounts of water up to two hours before the appointment). In most cases you may take your morning medications with a sip of water. If you have questions about medications before surgery, please call the office at 210-778-0002.
  • Cannot wear artificial fingernails or nail polish to their appointment – both interfere with our monitors.
  • Should have an adult driver (age 18+) to take them home.  We do not allow sedated patients to take a taxi, bus, or ride share.
  • Must bring their inhaler to the surgery if they have an inhaler. Bring the inhaler even if it has not been required or used in a long time.

Failure to follow the Pre-Op Sedation Instructions will result in cancellation of the surgery.

Dental Implant Surgery

River City Oral Surgery is the nationwide leader in up-front, affordable, and fair pricing. We offer single implants to replace one tooth or multiple implants to replace all the teeth in a jaw.

Placement of a Dental Implant(s):  $1,500 each

  • IV sedation for the implant
  • Local anesthesia to place the abutment if a separate abutment placement procedure is required

Implants are the screw that goes in the bone. After the implant is placed, patients still need a dentist to make the tooth that goes on the implant. The $1,500 fee does not include the crown to go on the implant.

For more information about dental implants, read our Dental Implant Fact Sheet.

We offer a 5 year warranty on our implants at no cost to eligible patients. Details are available here.
