EQUINE DENTISTRY

Our veterinarians provide equine dental care to all ages of horse. This can include teeth floating, power dentistry and general tooth health.

It is important to understand the way the horse's mouth functions in order to properly diagnose and treat issues of the teeth and mouth in the horse. Veterinarians are uniquely qualified to perform these activities and we help to ensure that any issues are properly addressed and look to optimize your horse's health.

As veterinarian's we use sedatives to help relax the horse to minimize stress and decrease strain on the TMJ joints during the procedures. Procedures performed without sedatives can cause undue stress on the horse despite the best efforts of the lay dentists that attempt to perform dental tasks. Sedatives should only be administered by a veterinarian as there are risks to the heart and brain if sedatives are incorrectly administered, incorrectly dosed or improperly used which lay dentists are not licensed or trained to detect or perform. At the end of the day, we want to ensure that your horse is treated humanely and in a minimal stress environment while performing any medical care be it dentistry or surgery.

Tooth extractions and advanced dental corrective techniques can be performed at the clinic facility on a case-by-case basis. Tooth extractions are a surgical procedure that comes with the need for sedative and anesthetic protocols as well as the use of xrays and surgical equipment to properly perform these removals. Extractions should never be performed by layperson dentists and if you have concern with your horse or their teeth, feel free to give us a call.

Equine dentistry is a veterinary procedure and should be performed under the care of a veterinarian.
