Materials and Methods: This study included 30 cases had partially erupted lower third molar teeth of diverse surgical complexity.

The patients were divided into two groups, in the first group, Kinesiology tape applied for 7 days, Diclofenac Na+ (Voltarin) 50mg tablet were given to the patients in the second group post operatively three times each day for seven days.

Swelling was assessed by a ribbon gauge method.

Assessments were done on first day of surgical management and on seventy-two hours and seven days afterward.

Results: statistically significant difference were recognized for swelling values between two treatment groups on the 1st, 3rd and 7th day subsequent to surgical work.

Conclusions: The use of Kinesiology tape have nearly the same effectiveness compared with Voltarin tablets in reducing post-operative swelling.
