Not related: Laughing gas, Nitrous Oxide, is removed from you system very quickly, usually 10 to 15 minutes after you stop inhaling it. You were probably coming down with a cold prior to that. Did you use the laughing gas during a medical or dental procedure? If not, you are lucky something else didn't happen.

How did you do that?: It is very difficult to rip the plica fimbriata. Are you sure that is what you ripped and not the lingual frenum? Either way the only way to help it heal is to avoid too much movement, avoid contact with your teeth and rinse with warm salt water. Do not use hydrogen peroxide or anything with alcohol. If it is not better in 7 to 10 days contact your dentist.

Yes: Any constant irritation to oral tissues can eventually cause changes to the tissue in those area which can lead to cancer. Denture patients who have constant rubbing of their dentures are very susceptible to this. Biting ones cheeks can do the same thing and anyone who smokes already has an increased risk or oral cancer.
