Dentistry Lectures At The 2021 AAEP Meeting – Podcast #041

The Equine Practice Inc, The Horse's Advocate

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) held its annual meeting last month and offered a section on the current state of equine dentistry.

There were eight lectures and a panel discussion. I report here what they said in each lecture and then add my commentary and interpretations on how it applies to horses from an owner’s perspective.

  • How to Perform a Thorough Oral Examination
  • How to Obtain Diagnostic Dental Radiographs
  • How to Recognize and Evaluate Periodontal Disease
  • Equipment and Treatment of Periodontal Disease
  • How to Recognize and Manage Age-Related Dental Problems in Geriatric Patients
  • How to Refer: What to Obtain, Gather, and Share for a Consultation or Referral
  • How to Perform Minimally Invasive Sinoscopy
  • How to Identify and Extract Blind Wolf Teeth
  • Panel Discussion

I am still not clear that what they can now offer with detailed examinations (digital X-rays, CT scans, and sinoscopy) really advances the health of the horse teeth more than good, regular and routine care. You be the judge.
