I'm not aware of the wisdom removal affecting Frenzel equalization. All of my wisdoms have been removed and I can still perform Frenzel.

If I recall correctly, there is a good period of time after removal where the pressure from a big sneeze can cause a blow out of the gums/bone under the stich they put in where your tooth was. Leading to ....? sinus communication?? Sneeze 125mmHg vs mouthful 40mmHg. Anyways I would go by the precautionary principle and not put high pressures in your mouth until the soft tissue heals and maybe longer till the jaw bone fills in a bit. 1 accidental valsalva could put way more than 40mmHg. Based on 6-8 weeks for a broken long bone to heal I would guess you would be safe after 6 weeks.
