I'm 11 weeks pregnant and I need a root canal. I'm already worried when I think about the x-ray and medications that I need to take after the procedure..

Talk to your OB. I believe they cannot do an x-ray this early in the pregnancy without risks to the baby. Root canals can be done without x-rays and with out heavy pain killers. I believe lidocaine is safe during pregnancy because they use it on you in delivery but please double check with your OB regarding your concerns. Your OB speciallizes in pregnancy and chances are your dentist doesn't.

Good luck,
