Advanced Dentistry

It is not uncommon for a routine dental examination to identify quite advanced dental problems, even in horses that don’t appear to have any issues.

  • Severe overgrowths and malocclusions
  • Caries (tooth decay) can be peripheral (around the tooth) or infundibular (inside the tooth)
  • Pulpitis (exposed pulps)
  • Periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • Diastemata (abnormal gaps between teeth, often with trapped food)
  • Fractured teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Toot root abscess
  • Sinusitis
  • Draining Tracts
  • EOTRH (Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis)

In this case we can advise on more advanced diagnostics and treatments for these dental problems such as:

  • Xray
  • Oroscope
  • Diastema bridging / widening
  • Fillings and restoration
  • Extraction
