The Equine Dental Clinic Ltd

EDC focus on equipment - as a Specialist equine dental vet practice, we always want to make sure we have the best and most modern equipment. People are often asking about equipment for restorations and endodontic work - here’s our current system of choice - the NSK Surgic Pro electronic surgical dental micromotor with TiMax hand-pieces - amazing precision instrument with variable speed and torque, plus LED illumination and water cooling - takes almost any length / type of bur - amazingly versatile instrument 🙂. Here is is in action preparing an infundibular cavity before filling / restoration at our Scottish friends at Loch Leven Equine Practice, Kinross.
(Note - be very careful using these instruments - high torque and superior cutting ability means you can easily cut through the tooth incorrectly if you are not completely aware of where your bur tip is)
Our EDC Key Skills 3 course introduces this instrument as well as the more traditional air turbine units :)
