I am 21 weeks pregnant and recently got my dental X-ray done for a root canal. I wore a lead shield. Am i still at risk from getting that x-ray?

In brief: No

If you took proper precautions (wore a lead shield and cervical collar) then the baby was not exposed to any radiation.

In brief: WHAT DID YOUR OB

Say?, all of these types of ?S should be directed to your OB and your dentist, if u wore a shield which you should have worn, then u should be fine.
