Dentist Carries Out Dental Check-Up on Polar Bear

 teeth health smile dentistWith the help of Yorkshire Wildlife Park rangers, vets and firefighters to lift the bear onto a makeshift operating table, a polar bear’s teeth were all checked for any problems.

Key takeaways:

– The dental checkup was necessitated after keepers in the park noted that a tooth, one canine, was of different color.

– The dental checkup of all the 42 teeth and an x-ray took about two hours.

– The procedure was well planned and the bear has made a full recovery and the findings showed nothing was amiss.

We could see that one of Victor´s canine teeth looked a slightly different colour to the rest of his teeth so we wanted to investigate and it was an opportunity to give him a full MOT.
