I was wondering if you could help me: I am not sure if it is OK to get a dentist's x-ray during pregnancy. I am 10 weeks pregnant and the dentist said it's OK, but I am not so sure. Could anyone help?
I was told not to do any dental x-rays, as you might damage little developing embryo and after all you have gone though to get it there I really would not take the risk!!!
Hope that helped,
I had to have my wisdom tooth removed urgently when I was six weeks pregnant. The consultant would not do an x-ray as it was the first trimester. He would, however, be willing to do one in the second trimester if it turns out I need my other wisdom tooth removed before I reach term.
Hi being a dental nurse 2 thought I would put my twopence worth in, we have never taken x-rays on pregnant woman wherever I have worked preferrring to wait until baby is born, with regards to injections with regards to what I was taught at the Royal London and what many dentists practice is not to give an injection containing Octapressin (non adrenaline) in the later stages of pregnancy, there are I have to point out 2 types of non adrenaline local, although in fairness the adrenalin should not be a problem to a pregnant woman its just the way it gets your heart pumping can be unsettling to some.
