  • A Typical Day of Floating Teeth 3/10/2011

    4,389 views 8 years ago
    Segments of seven different horses having their teeth floated in a traditional manner. No sedation nor restraint was needed. A full mouth speculum and ten different floats were used to reduce high and sharp teeth. All seven returned to normal eating and working immediately after their floats. Oral exams are all done by hand thereby limiting the strain placed on the TMJ. Horsemanship and a practiced hand allow the work to proceed without fuss. Many horses actually enjoy their floating!

    Equine Dentistry has entered a new era. With the advent of powertools for use in the mouth and new more powerful drugs for sedation. I question whether this is an advance for the horse or a step backward. View these videos and you decide.
