Dental problems in your horse may have signs of pain or inflammation, but with time your horse may adapt to the discomfort. Therefore, mature horses should have a thorough dental exam at least once a year and horses 2-5 years old should have a dental exam twice yearly. Bay City Veterinary Clinic uses the Power Float system to float your horse's teeth. This instrument uses a small grinding disc mounted on a lightweight hand held power drive. This system allows each tooth to be addressed individually throughout the mouth. Due to the precision of this instrument all dental procedures can be performed without trauma to other areas of the mouth.
