The need for dental care in older horses or those with poor bites has been recognized throughout the years. Only recently have the benefits of performance dentistry in our working horses been widely accepted. Various health issues and physical discomfort can arise from poor tooth condition. Maintenance dentistry is an integral part of a complete preventative healthcare plan for horses young and old. Our goal is to maintain a horse’s mouth to prevent sharp points and discomfort from ever developing. Many of the horses we see, however, have not had their mouths maintained regularly and are in need of correction for the problems that have developed due to wear. Our doctors have received specialized training and have extensive experience in the area of dentistry and are equipped with specialized motorized and hand equipment to make the necessary changes that each horse requires.
