At National Equine Dentistry we pride ourselves on being a mobile dental practice, coming to your ranch/facility to provide superior equine dental services and to have as gentle an impact on the horses as possible. It’s important to note that National Equine Dentistry works with your veterinarian as part of a total health approach for your horses.

Dental Examination/Odontoplasty

  • Incisor and canine tarter removal
  • Radiography, if needed will be ordered through your veterinarian or other veterinarian office with mobile Xray equipment

Removal of hooks and/or ramps

  • Use of motorized instruments or hand floats to effectively reduce the overgrown aspect of a tooth that is causing pain or difficulty in chewing. This is known as a protrubent tooth.
  • Some cases may need to be reduced over several sessions to prevent excessive crown removal and root or pulp exposure.
Incisor Reduction
  • Reducing the incisors to bring the cheek teeth into occlusion (touching)
  • Correct alignment of the incisor occlusion angle with the TMJ for maximum comfort of the horse

Wolf tooth  and non sugical extractions
