Dentistry is a highly specialized field. The amount of time it takes for someone to become a professional dental practitioner is reflective of the intricacies and attention to detail necessary for the particular job. Certain dental procedures may be lengthy due to said intricacies and wanting to ensure the job is done properly.
The skills of a dentist are great for fellow human beings, but in special cases members of the animal kingdom are also able to benefit as well. “A dental team in England meticulously performed a root canal treatment on a 400-pound, western lowland gorilla named Pertinax who lives at Paignton Zoo. Pertinax was sedated for two hours while the dental team went on with the dangerous dental mission. ‘Dentistry is a highly-specialist field, all the more so in exotic animals. Pertinax deserves the best and duly got it, added Neil Bemment who works as an environmental park curator of mammals at Paignton Zoo. Bemment stressed that Pertinax’s root canal was very successful.”
