Horses have hypsodont teeth, which means they continually grow throughout the horse's life. Due to the way a horse chews, enamel points will form and become sharp, leading to ulcers developing inside your horse's mouth. This causes contact issues while riding and overall pain and discomfort for your horse. To eliminate this problem, the enamel points are reduced using a powerfloat while your horse is standing under a light sedation. We recommend your horse receive an oral exam and dental every 9-12 months.
