Two molar side-by-side dental implants to be surgically placed only with a lidocaine injection. Like the one for a filling. Can I drive myself home?

In brief: Sure

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

In brief: Definitely, yes

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.
