Pregnancy is usually not that great of an issue when going to the dentist. There is always a concern with dental X-rays, so we tend not to take X-rays when a woman is pregnant. If there is an emergency and we need to take an X-ray, we can “double drape.” We use lead aprons that will protect the fetus. In addition, most obstetricians tend to tell us not to use anesthetics in the first trimester, especially those that contain vasoconstrictors.
