Elephant Tusk Surgery

0

If you think about it, an elephant's tusk is a big tooth. And like any tooth, a tusk can break or otherwise get damaged and the elephant would then need to see a dentist (shudder!). That's exactly what happened in the North Carolina Zoo.

But how exactly does one operate on an elephant's tusk? Dainty dental equipments surely aren't enough...  Enter Dr. Gary Spodnick and his power tools!

Disclaimer:  This version of the video, although no blood is spilled, may be disturbing to some viewers, since the power tools are shown in use on the animal.

It's big power tools. Just what do you think a modern dentist uses on your teeth? Same tools, smaller versions. The tool does have to fit the tooth size.
