Smooth-o-Matic

First off, let me just state the Black and Decker tool is awesome…..I personally like it Better than my Dremel. LOOK at where the power switch is, right under my thumb………that’s what the Rolling Stones were talking about! 3 speeds is great for teeth, Use the lowest power speed to avoid overheating!!!!!! Finally, a small, quiet tool to detail the incisors without running the risk of bumping into the alpaca’s palate or gums. The tool was also designed to shield the dust from coming up into your face and help prevent breathing this dust into your lungs. NO MORE sanding your FINGER anymore either!!!! Since there is no risk of injuring the alpaca, it speeds up the process. Currently made with the Black and Decker 3 speed RTX rotary tool and sold with a Bungee Bite Bloc, sanding drum kit, and soft carrying bag. The Magnifico Protecto Guard is also sold separately without a rotary tool (no bungee Bite bloc or drum sanding kit). This protective guard will fit on Dremel tools.

Tooth-A-Matic

Alpaca tooth trimmer
Many alpaca breeders are breathing a sigh of relief thanks to the Tooth-A-Matic.
The tool is designed for ease of use and versatility.
Tooth-A-Matic :
1) Is lightweight (4.8lbs) and runs on AC power.
2) Easy and FAST to use – Just 2-4 seconds!
3) Eliminates stress on the alpacas, included is a wind deflector to keep tool air flow out of alpaca’s or llama’s face
4) Eliminates stress on the human breeder too!
5) Offers the “option” to adjust the length of teeth to within .015″ if so desired
6)Grinding wheels last between 40-100 alpaca teeth trims depending how many cuts are made and the age of the animal
7)Additional grinding wheels are available
8) AND…Shhhhhhh…it takes the money out of the vet’s pocket and puts it in yours!
If you have a special need for a special large mouth or crooked teeth alpaca, we can simply furnish you with a custom sized CNC machined plate.
Place tooth hole of the base plate over teeth, turn on power, and slide the tool forward. This forward motion cuts the teeth with very little stress!
Base plates with a larger standard opening are available. The larger base plate opening accommodates more irregular bites and allows for more depth of trimming and flexibility.
Replacement Wheels, shims, base plates all available.

Tips for use of the Tooth-A-Matic (TAM):

1) The initial set up of the Tooth-A-Matic is very conservative relative to trimming depth. A portion of the bottom plate sits on the bottom of the lama’s mouth limiting the depth of the Tooth-A-Matic down over the incisors.

2) A large (2” diameter) rope dog chew toy works great to hold the alpacas mouth open when using t he TAM. Place the rope in the rear of the alpacas mouth to keep the mouth open and protect the tongue.

3) The lama should be well restrained; trimming teeth is never a one person job.
At a minimum one other person should hold the alpaca’s head using the chew toy above.
Better restraint is available using a chute or shearing restraint such as the Pro-Tie or shearing table.
Shearing time is a great time to trim teeth because the lama is already restrained.

4) If a halter is going to be worn while trimming teeth (such as in a chute) the nose band has to be extra large to allow the lama’s mouth to open properly

5) Determine the amount of tooth to be removed in trimming prior to placing the Tooth-A-Matic over the teeth.
A magic marker can be used at first to make a cutting line on the teeth.
Use at chest level or lower (belt level best) for visibility and control.
Use of the Tooth-A-Matic is not a blind operation; watch the cutting wheel approach & cut the teeth.

6) Place the Tooth-A-Matic over the lama’s incisor teeth, then turn on the tool once the Tooth-A-Matic is where you want it.

7) Hold the base plate while pushing the cutting wheel ahead.
This offers stability during the trim and keeps the base plate from pressing against the teeth/gums during the trim.

8) Once the teeth are trimmed I rock the Tooth-A-Matic from side to side before sliding back to round the bite just a bit.

Note: the Tooth-A-Matic is only sold as a complete unit for safety reasons & can not be adapted to other grinders.

I just wanted to say that this year was our first year with our Tooth-a-Matic and it was so wonderful! we did it while our shearer was working, and between my smaller plate and her larger we were able to do everyone who needed it in record time. When you are shearing 20 or more in one day, it is really a blessing to have teeth trimming be so quick. What a difference from the dremel! We figured we saved at least $900 since we bought it last year. Between the actual charge for trimming, meds to calm them down (which we haven’t had to use at all with the Tooth-a-Matic, in fact we even use it during herd health day without the restraints of the shearing table) gas to the vet, and after care for stress, it really adds up. No relation here, just a happy customer!
