Floating your horse's teeth is rasping or filing the teeth. Floating removes sharp enamel points. These enamel points cause considerable discomfort to the cheeks, gums and tongue. The most common tools used are the floats. They are long handled rasps that are designed just for filing down the teeth.
The floating procedure is only one aspect of a complete dental examination. A full evaluation of your horse's teeth should be done yearly, but in some cases a more frequent exam is necessary. Sharp points occur in most horses over time due to uneven grinding and wear on the horse's molars.
The clinical signs of dental disease are varied. Some horses show obvious signs of pain and discomfort while other may adapt to the discomfort without showing you any signs of dental problems until they become severe. Listed below are common clinical signs of dental problems.
