In brief: Yes with caution

In close consultation with your obgyn doctor the dentist can perform routine dental care.
If needed more invasive dental procedures can also be performed.Howeever, the first trimester and the second half of the third trimester should be avoided. A lead apron should cover all vital organs if xray needed which should be limited to a single focused xray if an infection or severe problem exists.

In brief: Middle trimester

Dental work during pregnancy should be done only during the middle trimester unless there is an emergency situation.
Always check with your OB doctor before proceeding with any dental treatment.
