Bald eagle requires emergency dentistry.
An unusual case was recently presented to emergency dentists in the US.
The Telegraph reported Cyrano – a North American bald eagle – had a big problem with his beak after it had become entangled in some heavy-duty fishing line.
Dentist Kirk Johnson was able to rebuild the top half of the bird’s beak using cosmetic dentistry putty, making the animal the world’s first bird to receive a filling.
“This was just a big tooth for a different individual – a very different individual.
“When they asked me if I had an interest in helping to repair a damaged bird’s beak I thought why not,” commented Dr Johnson.
Elsewhere, in human-related emergency dentistry news, a woman from Alrewas in Staffordshire travelled to Hungary to have emergency dentistry treatment carried out after her local dental professional killed the nerves in one of her teeth.
Julia Vorley, aged 40, made the trip to Budapest following an accident made by her local dentist.
