Do I need to take time off work if I get a Maryland bonded dental bridge?

Because tooth-shaping isn't usually required for a Maryland bonded dental bridge, you probably won't need to take time off from work due to pain or recovery. You will need at least two visits to create and install the bridge, and additional visits may be required to make sure the bridge fits correctly. If you need root canal work or implants to prepare your teeth for the bridge, those procedures could take one or more visits. In that case, if your dentist doesn't have evening or weekend hours, you may need to take time off work.
