The March of Dimes comments came in response to an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, which found dental X-rays during pregnancy were associated with an increased risk of low birth weight. Says Nancy S. Green, M.D., medical director of the March of Dimes:

"Preterm birth and low birth weight are serious and costly problems in this country. The March of Dimes urges all women of childbearing age to take a number of simple steps prior to pregnancy to help ensure the best possible start in life for their future babies. These include getting a medical checkup, a dental checkup and taking a multivitamin containing folic acid every day."

If you are pregnant now, tell your dentist and discuss postponing routine dental X-rays until after the baby is born, Dr. Green says.
