Your vet is right, there's nothing to worry about. Horse teeth aren't like people teeth, and they don't need to be fixed like ours.
A horse's teeth continually grow their entire lives, up until 26 or 28 years old. Which is why although horses don't need root canals or braces, it's important to have their teeth checked for hooks and sharp points at least once a year. Grinding down a horse's teeth to make an even wearing surface is called floating. Many horses need it done once a year or even more often, while others can go several years between floatings.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
