• Comprehensive dental evaluation—We will complete a comprehensive examination of your horse’s mouth so that we have a detailed record of any abnormalities that require follow up on subsequent visits. You will also be provided with a copy of this record to keep in your home medical files.
  • Dental Float—Dental equilibration and odontoplasty is necessary for your horse’s comfort and performance. Tooth wear is dependent on many factors, including age and breed of the horse, dental conformation, loose or missing teeth, diet (hay vs. pasture and pellet vs. whole grains), and abnormal chewing due to trauma, abscesses/tumors, or arthritis of the TMJ.
  • Geriatric dentistry—For older horses, it is particularly important to maintain dental health, as dental diseases can lead to poor body condition/ weight loss, pain, infection, and choke.
  • Extraction—Wolf teeth, loose or diseased teeth may need to be removed for your horse’s comfort and health.
  • Dental X-rays—We are able to do on-site X-rays of your horse so that we can see right away if they have any infected or diseased teeth, sinus diseases, tumors, or wolf tooth fragments.
