Understanding Equine Oral Endoscopy - Webinar
Instructor: Denis Verwilghen, DVM, MSc, PhD, DES, Dipl ECVS
Description: The substantial increase in science that has become available in recent decades around equine dentistry has led to a substantial paradigm shift in the way we look at horses teeth. When we only used to have a hammer (rasp), everything always looked like a nail (enamel point). Together with the science, the availability and affordability of oral endoscopes has dramatically changed and allows us to uncover many more pathologies that are likely at the basis aberrant mastication patterns and result in overgrowths. As in all other aspects of veterinary medicine diagnosis is our primary aim, and oroscopy allows us to get much better at diagnosing dental pathologies. This talk will discuss the basics of oral endoscopy in horses and provide examples of its use.
