Horses Teeth Maintenance & TMJ Temporomandibular Joint Repair

Posted on: March 5th, 2014 by legsaver No Comments

We have been treating horses for 15+ years with the LEG SAVER—a multi-functioning micro-current system that uses ting point and acupuncture principles for healing.  We have enjoyed remarkable success in treating a wide variety of conditions and ailments.

In recent years, there has been a marked increase in ailments that are difficult to analyze, difficult to diagnose and therefore difficult to treat successfully.  Dr. Heather Mack, DVM considers the TMJ to be the “Master Link” to restoring optimal wellness including psychological and physical issues, internal organ imbalances and addressing body compensations.

As noted in her article The TMJ is the ‘Master Link’  – ‘The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is critical for a horse’s survival and well-being.  It has two primary functions, mastication or the grinding of food and balance, i.e. its relationship with the ground or posture. With a balanced jaw a horse’s body can achieve a state of self-perpetuating wellness, everything from digestion to cell regeneration and rapid healing occurs easily, naturally.’

For more information on the anatomical aspects of this theory as well as recommendations for recognizing and evaluating this condition please read the article at  http://www.balancedequinewellness.com/Articles%203.htm.

I have had the pleasure of treating horses in many countries and it is has been my personal observation that other countries are far ahead of North America with respect to equine dentistry, which we have left in the hands of the veterinary community.  Regrettably, the veterinary community is failing us in this regard due to lack of dental education.  The University of Melbourne in Australia has a dental course that takes 13 to 18 months to complete.

I have worked with graduates from this program and it has been a tremendously rewarding experience.  These dental professionals DO NOT use POWER GRINDERS OR INSTRUMENTS to balance and float the teeth since these aggressive instruments can so easily compromise the delicate biomechanics of the jaw joint, causing a cascade of symptoms and health issues.

I strongly endorse Dr. Heather Mack, DVM whose knowledge of the TMJ and equine dentistry in general is unprecedented.
