I will answer your question since nobody will take the timw too.... as long as there are no x rays involved it is perfectly fine!!! How old are you?

You should be fine than... Nothing to worry about because they dont put you out for anything and you dont swollow anything. The only reason why i know is because i had braces for 2 years.

you are fine & you can still get the x rays no matter what people say they have ways around that stuff! trust me. i was pregnant when i got my x rays & when i got mine on & being pregnant & having themone speeds up your braces process because of the hormal changes =] best of luck

It is standard procedure to put that little blanket thing over you during an X-Ray. That is to protect your body. X-Rays are fine. Other than a possible problem with morning sickness, I don't see a problem with getting braces put on, but if you are going to have any procedure where they may need to inject medication or use the gas on you, you'll need to tell your dentist about your pregnancy.

id suggest you tell them anyway. i did- they didnt give me meds to put the braces on so you shouldnt have to worry about that =] all the luck
