As long as you are licensed. You'll still be numb on the drive home.

After receiving local anesthetic or nitrous oxide you can drive home or have a driver whichever is preferred. Some patients still like to have someone with them just in case they are not feeling up to driving.

No different that the anesthesia for a restoration.( As long as you don't need your mouth to drive :) ) Good Luck.
