Equine Dentistry

For over 2000 years, people have been looking into horses’ mouths – to judge their ages and to help with problems afflicting their teeth during domestication. Remnants of tooth rasps have been dated to the 1600s. During the late 1800s and early 1900s (before the age of mechanization and automobiles) the field of horse dentistry experienced a golden age… rivaled only by the explosion of interest and knowledge of the last 30 years.
