    If you need any tooth-shaping to anchor your cantilever dental bridge, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to prevent pain or discomfort during the procedure. Most people have very little pain after the cantilever bridge is put into place. If you are experiencing pain, dentists usually recommend over-the-counter ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin).
