Get a second opinion, if possible from a dentist who does CMA and BJJ just like you.
But in the end, listen to a doctor/dentist.
Oh, and drill, drill, drill like a mofo during recovery. Don't get roped into "light rolling" BS...just drill.What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable. -Xenophon's Socrates

DO WHAT THE FUCKING DOCTOR SAYS!!!!
Do NOT spar when you have two gaping holes in your jawbones unless you really want the world's most painful broken jaw. I had all four of my wisdom teeth cut out (they were all impacted) and trust me, do NOT do ANYTHING to exacerbate your condition. It will hurt like a FUCKING BITCH. Guaranteed. You'll probably spend the first week doped to your eyeballs with your jaws locked up, anyways, so I wouldn't worry too much about physical activity until at least the 2nd or 3rd week.Lord Krishna said: I am terrible time the destroyer of all beings in all worlds, engaged to destroy all beings in this world; Of those heroic soldiers presently situated in the opposing army, even without you none will be spared.

my bottom two teeth were straight extractions, the top two were impacted. 3 weeks for the general healing, and then it was weights and road work for 6 more weeks.
the time off can suck big time, but use it for drills, strength training, and roadwork.
