TACOMA, WA (WTVM) – A Polar Bear at a Tacoma, WA zoo and aquarium undergoes surgery to remove three broken teeth.

Boris, the 29-year old polar bear, did not go to the dentist office, but instead had his procedure done on an operating table at the zoo.

He has lived nearly twice as long as polar bears in the wild, and came to the Point Defiance Zoo back in 2002 after he was rescued from a traveling circus.

Boris' surgery was a success and he is now going to have to eat soft foods for a while.
