Regular dental maintenance is crucial to sustaining your horse's health and performance. At SSEC we have a full range of dental equipment, including reciprocating and rotary powered equipment plus hand tools and a speculum for every size horse. The stocks at our clinic make the dental procedures safe and comfortable for the horse, and much easier for the owner and the veterinary staff. Of course, we still do a large amount of dentistry in the field, but we suggest haul-ins for dentistry whenever possible.
Many horses do not show evidence of dental problems until they are well advanced. By this time they are more expensive to treat and sometimes cannot be completely corrected. For this reason we suggest an oral/dental exam at least once a year.
