Can my pregnant sister get a radiograph taken for her tooth?

Q: My sister is pregnant and she needs a root canal filling for her molar tooth. Can she have a radiograph taken for the tooth by wearing a lead apron? Please explain.

A:Yes, she can have it done after protection with lead apron. Alternatively, along with lead apron protection, she can get it radiographed with digital radiography which requires less radiation and still safer(RVG).
