Why didn’t my dentist mention the option of a Maryland Bridge? I only found it by an internet search.

A Maryland Bridge doesn’t work for most cases where you have a missing tooth. Plus, some dentists don’t know how to do them, and there are technical problems with their use in that they aren’t as strong or reliable as a conventional bridge.
If you have a missing tooth, in my opinion the dentist should give you the option of either replacing it with a conventional dental bridge or with a dental implant. In some cases, a removable partial denture may be an appropriate option. Only in special circumstances would a Maryland Bridge or an Encore Bridge be an appropriate option.
