We offer complete dentistry services for your horse. We utilize a motorized float system for maintenance and preventive dental care in horses of all ages. In horses, teeth continuously erupt throughout most of their life and the development of sharp points and hooks can occur over time based on how they chew and break down feed material. Because of this, horses require regular dental attention to prevent the development of permanent dental disorders, irritation to soft-tissue structures in the mouth, dropped feed, and weight loss. Other medical concerns include the inability to break down forage that can lead to impaction in the intestinal system and development of colic.
Advanced diagnostics such as radiographs can be performed to diagnose sinus issues and tooth root pathology. Extractions can be done with standing sedation or general anesthesia if necessary.
At JE, our advanced, certified equine dentist can care for all of your horse’s dental needs.
