Advanced Preventative & Restorative Equine Dental Care for your Horse
The philosophy of Equine Dentistry is to alleviate pain in the mouth, ensure proper alignment of teeth and arcades and promote longevity of all teeth. With regular visits your horse will remain comfortable and able to perform to his peak potential.
Horse Dentistry Limited uses proven techniques and only the best quality specialised tools and equipment, paired with the highest standards of training and knowledge to ensure each horse receives the best possible care and treatment available. Our Equine Dentists work with your horse to maintain natural balance and alleviate causes of pain or discomfort in the mouth to increase overall health and performance.
A routine equine dental visit consists of checking all teeth for balance and signs of disease. A speculum is used to ensure that every tooth in the mouth is able to be palpated and worked on if required. Sharp enamel points, and maloclussions which cause imbalance in the mouth, are reduced or corrected to restore natural balance and function. Each horse is also set up with bitseats to ensure maximum comfort when wearing a bit. Our Equine Dentists will also happily discuss your horses diet with you, and give advice regarding the correct type and fit of bit for your horse.
At Horse Dentistry Limited our work is carried out predominantly with hand tools, on horses that have not been sedated. Hand tools provide a less invasive, less stressful means to perform accurate and thorough equine dental analysis and performance. We may request that horses be sedated only when absolutely necessary as a safety precaution for unhandled or difficult horses, or to perform more advanced procedures.
Specialised power tool and endodontic equipment is also carried on board the Horse Dentistry Limited vehicle .
Clients receive a dental chart for each horse on completion of the visit.
