If the surgery was complex i would wait at least a week to ten days before participating in any physical sport. If the surgery was simple and the teeth were not impacted and removed without cutting gums or bone then waiting a few days should be fine.

At least 7 days, but for contact sports youay want to wait longer. You must ask your surgeon as they are familiar with your individual circumstances.
