After Maxilliofacial Jaw Surgery?

I recently had jaw surgery, and just noticed that the surgeon had placed a coating of some sort in the roof of my mouth. What is this, and will it be removed?

It depends. Did the surgeon work on your lower or upper jaw? I had maxillofacial surgery, too -- on the mandible. so I had nothing on the roof of my mouth.

If you were operated on the upper jaw, the "coating" may be some sort of adherent... which may have to be removed by the surgeon or which may dissolve. Ask him/her.. Without knowing what it is, we can't answer with certainty here.
