Best Answer

Tooth x-ray, also known as dental radiography, is using low energy radiation. If what you mean by tooth x-ray is orthopantomography (OPG), the dose is slightly higher. There are risks of unwanted effects to your baby especially during the first trimester. Unless the x-ray is emergency, I recommend you to postpone.

Typically yes. The main concern is that the radiation from Xrays have been associated with an increased risk of cancer and diseases for the unborn baby.
