Dental Radiographs in New Orleans, LA
If your pet needs a Dental Radiograph, we understand that you want it to be performed as safely as possible. Here at Ark Animal Hospital, we offer the best and most up-to-date digital radiography in Jefferson.
What Is a Dental Radiograph?
Digital radiology or radiography, also known as a digital X-ray, is an advanced diagnostic tool that is mainly used to virtually see your pet’s organs or mouth, including, but not limited to, the cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and urinary systems. It is a non-invasive process that allows us to have a better look at your pet's condition. With this gentle procedure, we can clearly see issues and address them quickly.
Dog and cat dental cleanings are not complete without full mouth X-rays. Though in many cases, the visible crown of the tooth may appear normal, Dental Radiographs can reveal problems with the root below. Once all of the teeth have been X-rayed, our veterinarian will review them and decide what treatment, if any, is required for each tooth. At Ark Animal Hospital, all dog and cat dental cleanings include full mouth radiograph.

Is Dental Radiology Painful or Harmful to My Pet?
Dental Radiographs are a completely painless procedure. If your pet is calm and cooperative, we will not even need to sedate them. If your dog or cat has anxiety issues, a sedative or general anesthesia may be administered to allow them to relax. Dental Radiographs are safer than ever for pets and humans alike, with minimal exposure to radiation, which is completely harmless.
