Is it safe to have dental work done?

Hi, I am wonder how safe it is to have dental work done? I am 15 weeks and am having some toothache. Is there any pain relief that is ok? Are X-rays a no-go?
Thanks
Julie

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. It is safe to have dental work done during pregnancy and it is best to sort out any problems with your teeth. X-rays are not recommended but you can be protected if need be. Always inform your dentist that you are pregnant and they will be sure not to put your baby at risk. Best wishes, Alex.
