When H. Peter Ku, D.D.S. PA comes to the office, the last thing he expects to see is a 400 pound gorilla sitting in his chair waiting for a root canal.
This was not your typical root canal for the medical staff and zoo dentist Dr. Peter Jertesz of the Paignton zoo in Devon, England. The gorilla that weighed almost 400 pounds was put to sleep for 2 hours during the procedure.
It took ten people to help during the 45 minute procedure, the 38 year old gorilla is expected to make a full recovery.
