In brief: Homeopathy

Homeopathic hypericum is amazing after tooth extraction to decrease pain and swelling.
Ice/cool packs also help.

In brief: Ice Packs

Using ice packs immediately postoperatively on the side where the teeth were removed is the first step.
Moist heat applied to the same areas days later will also help.
