Dental Xray can be done in the second trimester of pregnancy. it should be done with proper lead apron for protection against radiation.

any dental procedure is safe in the 2nd trimester (4th to the 6th month) & dental x-ray exposure is very less, so it can be done with a help of a lead apron on the patient

No in general 

but if there is a real urgency - 
1.Use low xray dose settings
2.Use Digital Xray system 
3.Use Lead Protected Sheet Coat for Xray

  1. Yes! Dental X-rays are safe to have during pregnancy. 
  2. The American Dental Association and the American Pregnancy Association both agree that very low radiation levels are used in dental X-rays which do not harm either a pregnant woman or her unborn baby.
