A full evaluation of your horse’s teeth should be done yearly, though in some cases more frequent examinations are necessary. Sharp points occur in most horses over time due to uneven grinding and wear on the horse’s molars. Floating (filing or rasping the teeth) removes sharp enamel points that cause considerable discomfort to the cheeks, gums and tongue.

With the advent of motorized dental equipment, veterinarians are now even better equipped to meet all of your horse’s dental needs. There have been many exciting advances in equine dentistry over the past five years that have revolutionized our ability to provide the highest level of dental care.
