I just got my wisdom teeth out. I'm having no trouble with the pain caused by it, but my cheeks have swollen up like a chipmunk. I've been icing them, but that doesn't seem to help too much. Does anyone know any other ways to quickly reduce swelling?

Hmm, I only had one out and they had to cut the gum to remove it but I didn't experience much swelling.
I was hypnotised before hand actually by my Dad for it as I am hopeless at the dentist, so he claims that he helped to reduce any swelling
So not much help, but hey I can gloat lol

My Dr. recommended 500mg anti-inflammatory before surgery, and 200mg in regular intervals afterwards. Take an anti-inflammatory pill, as thats what they are designed to do, stop inflammation.

for two separate surgeries that had a lot of swelling, both docs told me to take ibuprofen at precription strength.
