Dentists in India cure elephant's five-year toothache!!!

Dentists in the Indian state of Kerala say they have successfully repaired a working elephant's cracked tusk in the first operation of its kind.

They performed the procedure on Devidasan, a 27-year-old bull elephant, by filling the 50cm (19.6in) long, 4cm (1.5in) deep crack with special resin.

Forty-seven tubes of the resin were needed to fill the gap, which was causing the animal some discomfort. More...
