Dr Simmelink offers advanced dentistry that includes a comprehensive assesment of the mouth with a speculum and light. Each horse receives a customized plan of treatment based on the exam. She uses a sedative for safety and analgesia. A "power float" tool is used to correct for malocclusions and to file down sharp dental points. Her goal is to provide the safest and most effective dentistry possible to allow your horse to be comfortable in his mouth while eating and while wearing a bit. Preventive dentistry early in life can help a horse keep his teeth longer into old age.
