Open wide!

If you’ve ever felt uncomfortable about visiting the dentist, then perhaps you’d better not look at this image……a horse dentist at work.  Surprisingly most horses are quite tolerant of having their teeth done, which is usually 1-2 times a year.

    • Thanks:-) I may get a chance to do more on this subject soon. I hadn’t had this camera very long when I took this shot – I’d like to think I’ve improved a bit since then:-)

    • A variety of files – rasps – are used on the teeth. The metal gag is simply to keep the mouth open. Only rarely does surgery have to be performed.

  1. Great capture. I am not a fan of dentists, since I had my braces “incident.” But I do value their expertice in their field.

    It seems that this horse is not having an issue!
