Equine dentistry is an area of horse care which has evolved significantly over the last decade. As a practice, we believe that we can only do the best job in a sedated horse. Even if a horse is well-behaved, the use of dental mirrors and probes (which are vital for thorough examination) is not effective in an un-sedated horse. We now realised the importance and prevalence of conditions such as dental caries (cavities) and diastema (gaps between teeth) with food packing and gum disease. A check of the mouth and feel with fingers is possible in most horses without sedation, but will not pick up on some of these more subtle conditions. We have all the equipment necessary to perform thorough equine dental care, including rasping, diastema treatments and widening, wolf teeth removal, extractions and more. We are happy to perform dentistry ourselves or work with BEVA/BAEDT registered equine dentists. We reduce the cost of sedation when it is combined with a dental to encourage its use and are happy to discuss discounts for multiple horses on the same yard.
