Dentist visits an elephant – level 2
We all know what it is like to have a toothache, but it cannot be as bad as an elephant’s toothache! Keepers at a zoo in England noticed that one of the elephants stopped eating properly. They decided that it was time for a visit from the dentist.
He found out that one of the teeth was in a wrong position. The tooth was not moving forward and dropping out as it should. Part of it was starting to resolve and there was an infection around it, too.
The dentist put the elephant fast asleep during the procedure, which took about two hours. The elephant is feeling much better now.
Difficult words: resolve (to break apart), fast asleep (very difficult to wake up), procedure (an operation).
