Without pain or swelling, after seven days you've pretty much healed. Unless your oral surgeon provided you with specific instructions on activities to avoid I would think that you're good to go.

You need to pamper the area of surgery, for the wound willnot close for about 21 days, and keep up the salt water mouth rinse gently.
