Why Dentist advise for No X Ray in Pregnancy for Dental Treatment. Without X Ray Extraction of root is not possible. Please advise. Thanks.

Xrays are harmful to baby in early and late months of pregnanacy. In some cases roots of teeth do break or are planned for extraction by splitting in pieces. So the root structure is required to be seen in total depth which is possible only by xrays and other such means.

Hi, X-ray ,i.e.RVG digital X-ray can be done i.e with the help of all necessary precautions like lead aprons etc.
Xrays have radiations which may harm foetus.
