Risico’s bij gebruik van elektrische instrumenten op tanden!


The EDAA does not support the use of non water-cooled powered dental tools:

  • The incorrect use of powered dental tools creates heat which can cause irreversible damage to the horse’s teeth
  • Sedation is usually required which can only be administered by a registered veterinarian
  • Sedation is rarely required with the use of hand files
  • Traditional hand files are very precise to use and a qualified dentist can tell exactly how much tooth is being removed
  • Powered dental tools are less accurate. The cutting heads are bulky making them particularly difficult to use in the limited space between the cheek and upper molars
  • There are still major concerns with the use of powered dental tools with respect to horse welfare and damage to the teeth from heating of the dental pulp
