In brief: Varied

Different surgeon use different meds.
Commonly used are versed, fentanyl, ketamine, propofol. For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon. Use the regimen that surgeon prefers.

Most oral ; maxillofacial surgeons will use a combination of intravenous versed, a narcotic like fentanyl, propofol, and ketamine.
There are many other drug combination that also work very well and are safe.
