Equine dental imaging

A 1 day course covering all aspects of equine dental and sinus digital imaging including practical radiographic technique and interpretation, and interpretation of more advanced imaging techniques such as Computed Tomography.

The course will start with a review of equine head and dental anatomy, which will be followed by practical training in head radiography (to include dental, sinus and TMJ), collection and film reading. The morning will conclude with a session on interpretation of head radiographs and treatment planning.

The afternoon session will focus on advanced imaging techniques for the equine head, focussing on CT, but including an introduction to nuclear scintigraphy and MRI. Case selection for advanced imaging and approaches to image reading will be presented. Delegates will be given the opportunity to review and interpret CT scans from clinical cases. The afternoon will conclude with presentations of advanced imaging clinical cases. Delegates are encouraged to bring their own cases for discussion.

 - How to take diagnostic radiographs for equine dentistry and sinus disease

- Interpretation of radiographic images

- Understanding and interpreting advanced imaging modalities of the equine head (CT and MRI)

Endodontic equipment and technique principles in equine dentistry

This is a 1-day course covering all detailed description of different dental equipment and dental materials available including principles of use and how to best use the equipment and material for different equine dental procedures.

The course will start with a review of dental equipment/ dental units, discussing different available systems with the difference in air turbine compared with motorised units. This will include discussion on slow and fast handpieces, and different burrs available and applicable to equine endodontic/ restorative treatments. The morning will conclude with a practical session on use of the different materials.

The afternoon session will focus on an overview of dental materials available in dentistry and the materials potentially relevant to equine dentistry. The afternoon will conclude with practical sessions on using the different materials and demonstration of practical use. 

 - Understanding and learning about different dental units for restorative/ endodontic treatment and how to use them effectively

- Learning about all the available dental burs and files, and how they are applicable to equine use

- Detailed overview of all the dental materials applicable in equine dentistry and how to use them.
