Hello there!
I can understand the severity of pain. try some of these medictions groups . Acetaminophen liquid or tablet form with or with out codein. for lower ones you might need a prescription but they are potent and last resort for the mandibular pains from dislocations and reconstructions. (Astramorph/Duramorph) (Duragesic, Sublimaze) (Valium / Ativan)

You should consider some nerve block procedures for your pain management .
