When I remove wisdom teeth, I start treating that from the day prior to the procedure, beginning medication ahead of time to try to minimize the discomfort you're going to have after the procedure. When we do that with IV sedation, I also give some medication through the IV line to try to minimize chances of feeling nauseated, try to minimize chances of or the amount of swelling that you're going to have after the procedure. So with those medications, it helps with the comfort afterward as well as during.
