In horses, the permanent dentition begins to erupt at approximately 1 year of age and is in place by approximately 5 years of age. Because juvenile horses can develop undesirable behaviors due to oral pain, veterinarians perform oral examinations and diagnostic tests to identify dental problems. Various procedures are designed to alleviate oral pain.
