Routine dentistry keeps your horses mouth healthy which is the mainstay of keeping your horse healthy.
We recommend that your horse has a dental examination every 6-12 months depending on the age of the horse, their history and whether there are symptoms of oral discomfort. This can be done on your yard or at our equine clinic.
What happens in a routine dental examination?
Most horses will require reduction of sharp enamel points and possibly some overgrowth reductions. This can be performed on the yard or at the clinic, with or without sedation.
Our services include the detection and treatment of:
- Congenital abnormalities
- Sharp enamel points
- Abnormal conformation including out of line or rotated teeth
- Peripheral and infundibular caries
- Pulp exposure
- Diastemata including associated gum disease
- Oral tumours
Wolf tooth extraction
We also offer wolf tooth extraction as routine, either on your yard or at our clinic. Horses must by law be sedated for this procedure.
