Equine Dentistry

Horse teeth continue to grow throughout their lives, creating problem areas known as "points" and "waves." Years ago, these problems were corrected by smoothing the teeth with hand filing tools, an approach that is still occasionally practiced on horses with very minor issues. 

We offer both hand floating and motorized floating (far more common and comprehensive) depending on which is more appropriate for the horse's dental needs. Both procedures are usually performed under sedation.

Motorized dentistry is best performed at our haul-in facility, though can be performed at your home or barn. Stocks and fans add efficiency, lower the stress on the horse, and lower the cost of the procedure.
