vet charged my client over $800 and had not resolved the problem.
I worked on this Arabian endurance horse and resolved everything in one procedure for far less........
My Arabian had a severe overbite. I have had someone else work
on him twice before. At great expense I was disappointed in the outcome.
I met Brian at the equine affair and made an appointment. My horse is like a different animal. He is relaxed and
Brian had to do extensive work that
took almost 2 hours but now his teeth line up and after 2 weeks he is putting on weight.
He is also alot smoother and comfortable under staddle, and his endurance is through the

I hope this
will take away some of the mystery and concerns you may have about motorized equipment.
It has been my experience that motorized dental equipment is far more effective
when compared to old style manual hand file floating at balancing your horses dental arcades and successfully bringing your
horses mouth back into occlusion.

When should I have my horses teeth
floated and why.
I know if I do not see my dentist regularly that bigger problems will arise.
Your horses dental care is no different.
The goal in my line of work
is to catch problem before they become so obvious that it begins to effect your horses health.
Its a misnomer that if your horses weight
is good that its teeth are OK.
This is a myth! horses can have severe dental problems and sometimes still be keeping good weight.
Here is a guide line on how
often your horse should have us look at its teeth.
1 to 6 years
During this period horses will shed 24 deciduous
teeth and erupt up to 44 permanent teeth. Problems such as sharp enamel cingulae (points), impacted teeth, deciduous or baby
teeth that fail to shed and early development of serious cheek teeth malocclusion's such as hooks, waves and ramps can be
identified and treated through exams every 6 months.
Horses that receive this kind of care are ensured the best outcome for any dental abnormalities
through early detection and have a much better mouths to carry them through adulthood.
It is also important during
this time to ensure all horses have any source of oral pain properly detected and treated before
beginning their training;
to do so can lead to the development of behavioural changes associated with pain and negative experiences with the bit, this
may effect your horses attitude towards riding and can possibly be lifelong if not address.
7 to 12 years
All adult teeth should now be present in the horse's
mouth. The rate of wear begins to slow slightly as the teeth harden and most horses in light work on a mostly pasture based
diet will need to be seen every 12 months.
in heavy work or horses that are stabled and fed concentrates will need more regular examination as these changes cause them
to chew differently affecting the way the teeth wear.
Again in horses of this age group early detection of problems and removal of sharp cingulae (enamel points) is very important. Disease that affects
the structures which support the tooth, the periodontal ligaments begin to occur and early detection and treatment is the
only way to prevent premature loss of the tooth.
13 to 20 years
Some of the horses in this age group are beginning to have a decreased ability to maintain condition
due to a decrease in the availability of nutrients across the gut wall; some will need increased dietary intake.
Common dental conditions account for about a thirty percent decrease
in weight gains and proper care is vital to ensure these horses maintain conditions. Early detection of periodontal disease
(disease of the structures that anchor the tooth in place) will prevent the premature loss of that tooth.
Most horses in this age bracket require annual dental exams.
over 20 years
Dentally, this group of horses is beginning to reach the end of their reserve
crown. They often have concurrent diseases that affect them such as cushings (hyper adrenocortiscism) and can have difficulty
maintaining weight just like elderly people. So their diet and dental care and management of other diseases must be of the
highest standard to ensure longevity.
