any ache after wisdom tooth removal via iv sedation?

Two different items.: Iv sedation or nitrous are methods of anesthesia and analgesia. Even plain old numbing fits into these areas. When you do get "knocked" out for surgery you still get shots to numb you up. The pain following tooth removal can be there no matter what methods are used. The IV sedation is more for the patient's comfort level and also makes it easier for the surgeon to do his magic.

Not so: Iv sedation doesn't affect the post op healing. It only provides deeperr anesthesia during the surgery.

The same: Whether you have IV sedation or not, having wisdom teeth removed will result in your healing the same way-at your own pace. You will have the same amount of inflammation and soreness because anesthesia has no real effect on the surgical procedure, only your memory of it.
