Yes, please do.

Good dental hygiene is associated with good pregnancy outcomes. A severely infected tooth, on the other hand, may lead to problems for the pregnancy. There are no routine practices at the dentist’s office that are unsafe during pregnancy. This includes pulling teeth and getting dental x-rays. A pregnant woman can undergo many tens of thousands of shielded dental x-rays during pregnancy without fear of delivering a harmful amount of radiation exposure to the pregnancy.

Local anesthetics, antibiotics, and pain medicines that are commonly used by dentists are all also safe during pregnancy. If your dentist has a question about a particular antibiotic or other medicine, have her ask your doctor.
