Hawkedon Equine Dental Service » ADVANCED PROCEDURES

Advanced procedures are dental procedures usually requiring sedation and specialized tools and knowledge.

Unfortunately it is quite common to find quite advanced dental disease in horses that seemingly have no problems eating or being ridden or driven. This tells us that either horses are very stoical, or that we are not very good at reading the signs that something is wrong in their mouths.

Many advanced corrections can be performed at your premises but more complex procedures will require the horse to be seen at the clinic in Hawkedon.

Painful interventions such as extractionsor treatments of periodontal disease are performed with the administration of local anaesthetic to numb the pain. Painless treatments reduce the sedation dose required when treating dental disease and are far kinder to your horse.

Advanced Procedures include:

  • Extractions
  • Corrections of overgrowths
  • Treatment of periodontal disease
  • Fillings
  • Endodontics (eg. Root canal treatments)
