  • normally as a premedication antibiotics and the sedatives are prescribed so as to take care of the infection and the anxiety. Whether you need anything for swelling depends upon the dentist who has to do the surgery. Without taking proper history and doing clinical examination it is not possible to comment . If you have any doubt then you can discuss with your denist or you can take the second opinion.
