Routine teeth floating is perhaps one of the most forgotten or misunderstood veterinary service that a horse should have done. A common misconception is that horses only need their teeth floated when they start dropping grain. Since horses’ teeth continue to grow throughout their life, ridges can develop on the insides and outsides of the molars in 1-2 years. These sharp ridges can cause irritation and sores or ulcers on the inside of the cheek or on the tongue. These can become infected and painful. Routine floating removes these ridges to prevent sores from developing in the mouth. Floating also eliminates “hooks” on the premolar teeth and evens out the incisor teeth. Waiting too long between floatings can allow these ridges and hooks to become more severe and more difficult to remove. To provide our equine patients with a more effective, quicker, less stressful teeth floating experience, we use a Terravet Power Float for this procedure.
