Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis (EOTRH) is a painful equine dental disease that is now a well-recognised condition, most commonly affecting the incisors of older horses. Radiographic examination is required to diagnose the disease, but there is not necessarily good correlation between radiographic changes and the clinical presentation. Successful treatment is limited to extraction of the affected teeth. The international panel of world-renowned veterinary dentistry specialists will focus on the typical presentation of this disease, diagnosis, decision making in regards to treatment options, including conservative management and long-term outcomes in geriatric horses with EOTRH.
