I had seven teeth removed, including my wisdom teeth, before getting braces and was fortunate to need no more then a dose of classic Tylenol that day and the next. Swelling was gone in a couple days and I don't remember tenderness when moving about. "Worse" part was not being able to eat real food, I tored of vanilla ice cream quicker then I thought I would. It truly is an experience that differs greatly from one person to the next.
I would say if the holes in your gums are healing nicely (dont skimp on the salt water rinses!!) and you're not in pain you should go for it. I don't remember how long after my surgery I got back to riding, I was back to softball practice fairly quick though.
