Pretty easy if the procedure is successful. The surgeon will want you to keep your jaw moviing. soft diet for a while. And have appropriate surgical follow up.

TMJ arthroscopy is a procedure that is a little more involved and invasive than a lavage. Recovery time from this surgery is several days to a week.
