This also happened to me. This summer my wisdom teeth were removed and it took at least 1 week before i could pick up the thing and play, I was afraid of the ever dreaded dry sockets or that i would blow my stitches out. From that 1 week it took another 2 weeks for me to hit above a D (4th line on staff), and I had trouble not puffing my cheeks. It was sore but in about 3 or so weeks I was back to normal. Depending on your healing speed could be a week could be two months.. all depends on the luck of the draw.
