EOTRH - Dental Disease
The dental disease EOTRH was long considered untreatable.
Older horses from around 15 years of age are particularly affected by the very painful dental disease EOTRH (Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis)
So far there is no successful therapy against it; in the worst case, all affected teeth will be extracted. Medicinal mushrooms have been shown to be helpful. We have also tried Vetdrop treatment in conjunction with these medicines and the result has been very good. Please refer to our treatment journal at:

Veterinarian comments on Playboy's case
Yes, I would also find it very interesting, and I am also sure that you could definitely inhibit and reduce the inflammation of the mucous membranes and the progression of the disease. In any case, this brings significant pain relief. However, the problem in the tooth socket remains and so does the resulting pain. Unfortunately, EOTRH is very, very painful, especially in the advanced stage, and the pain is not easy to recognize from the outside or not at all (whether the horse is clinically well or it is eating does not say anything). Therefore, the fastest and best option for horse pain relief is total tooth extraction. Based on the photos, it must still be a very painful process because the mucous membrane overgrowth indicates severe hypercementosis in the tooth socket. The horse, provided the molars are nicely balanced, has no problems after a total incisor extraction, except that the tongue protrudes a little. Unfortunately, I can't say more about this at the moment, I haven't seen the case myself. We must therefore leave the decision to the owners, whether they want to put up with longer pain for the horse or whether they want to go for the extraction straight away.
In any case, I only notice a significant improvement in my EOTRH patients after removing tartar and shortening the incisors, as well as when the owners regularly brush their teeth and remove food residues afterwards. So there must definitely be an improvement with the vetdrop in my eyes. Especially in the early stages I can imagine that regression and stabilization might even be possible. You should definitely have x-rays in addition to the photos for documentation. I am already convinced that the gums look significantly better after a few weeks, but the x-ray should show whether there is also an effect in the tooth socket. And if there is a clear improvement there, you can also convince critics of it.
Another comment from a veterinarian who specializes in teeth
He said he doesn't like pulling his teeth if they eat well, are not lean and can bite off carrots, you can definitely wait. He also says it could very well have been tartar that has come off, there are different forms of the disease and some make a lot of tartar above the gums and below the hypercementosis. He thinks that the vetdrop stimulates the body's defenses and the oxygen helps the tissue to regenerate - and therefore the situation is improved. He says, for example, that when these horses are stressed or vaccinated (immune system is weakened) one often observes that it gets worse. But when the horses eat well, he waits as long as he can to pull his teeth.
Playboy and Max needed more treatments - but we had great success. Max lost no teeth and Playboy only lost 2. More information can be found in our treatment journals - EOTRH treatment horse
