Jaw Surgery: Questions that ask "how painful is.....? Are best answered by a health care professional who has already examined you and knows you, your history and the specifics of the proposed procedure. Patients vary widely in regard to pain threshold, reaction to medication ; recuperative powers, and two individuals may report totally different experiences with the exact same procedure. Talk to your own dr.
