1: THE MESS!
(click it to big it!)
I don't think you have to be an expert to look at this pano x-ray and see how messed up my chompers are. Look at the #18 tooth which is the molar on the lower far right. See how the bone has receded away from the root? But the teeth that are in the most need of help are the uppers. I will probably be having at least the upper front 8 teeth extracted (#5 thru #12), implants and then new PFM (porcelain fused to metal) teeth or Zirconia teeth or a combination of the two.
