Zookeepers noticed Hati had fractured one of his teeth.
The root canal was performed by Dr. K. Randall Groh and his staff from Dental Leaders in Coral Gables.
The procedure took about an hour and a half. After which, Hati was returned to his enclosure where he is expected to make a full recovery.
The root canal helps to close a portal for infection while also eliminating what must have been a very painful toothache.
