In brief: Premedication

Premedication starting a day before wisdom teeth extractions with a mild steroid (decadron) and an anti-inflammatory (motrin) will do wonders at keeping swelling and pain under control after the procedure.
Review this with your treating dentist.

In brief: Get a consult 1st

Make sure you meet with an oral surgeon prior to any decisions you make.
This will insure that you formulate the best plan of attack with the least amount of post-operative discomfort. Knowing ahead of time, whether 3rd molars require surgical methods, sedation, pre-op medications all weigh heavily into your ultimate success. Simply put, make sure you (and all involved) are on the same page.
