Inverting elliptic integrals

Is it possible to invert an incomplete elliptic integral of the third
kind (Legendre's canonical form)? The books I have looked at give
the elliptic function sn as the inverse of the first kind of integral
but I have yet to find inverses for the second or third kinds. Is
this just a problem of only one of the integrals being bijective over
its domain?
Thanks in advance,
Gordon Inverarity
