Will the dentist use anaesthetic?

Normally it isn’t necessary to have an anaesthetic for a Maryland bridge. However It's usually necessary for a conventional bridge, unless the tooth or teeth being used for the retainers have already had root canal treatment. The dentist will let you know before work starts whether you need an anaesthetic and, if you do, will anaesthetise the teeth before starting to work on them.
