Why would I need a dental x-ray while pregnant?

Active dental infections don’t resolve on their own. In many situations, professional dental care is needed before the situation becomes more complex…or worse, spreads to other areas of the body.

 

Since most dental procedures can’t be completed without the use of an X-ray, pregnant women who are experiencing tooth pain or oral infections can still safely rely on getting X-rays to diagnose and treat their condition.

 

When you do, your dentist will still use a lead apron to shield any scatter radiation from reaching your developing baby.
