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.

Can you xray during pregnancy?

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. Although it is not certain if you can avoid it, do. It is VERY important to notify anyone who may be performing an Xray that you may be pregnant before the Xray.
