Dentists perform root canal to an elephant

People go to dentists for tooth ache, so do elephants.
A giant pachyderm in southern India was operated on for chronic tusk ache.
A three-member team of Indian dentists and a veterinary surgeon performed a two-and-a-half hour root canal surgery to a 27-year-old elephant, which developed a cavity in one of its tusks.
The dentists said the elephant was the perfect patient as they drilled and pumped resin into the huge cavity in the tusk.
