Don't know about the effect of nitrous oxide. I'd ask a LLL leader or look it up on Dr. Hale's website. But I'd *guess* that it will be out of your system completely in a matter of hours, NOT days, so if your dd can be happily distracted by your partner, grandma, dear friend, etc, till you're ready to nurse her, that part will likely be okay. I also know that for most drugs, as the level of drug in your blood goes down it goes down in your milk, too - so I'd guess you wouldn't need to pump & dump even.
My wisdom teeth took general anesthetic. But since you think you won't have those done for a while, I'd worry about that when it happens - dd could self-wean, she could understand "mommy's sick and can't nurse until xxx", etc.
