    Hello,

    I have had a new crown placed about 1 year earlier. For check up, I went to dentists a few times with xray.

    The PA radiograph on the very top says the shape of crown (which is on the left) changed(right-bottom side became longer) as compared with other 3 radiographs. I'm not sure what is going on with either shape of my crown or gum line. The angles from which each of the 4 radiograph was taken look reasonable and similar.

    Here is the link to radiographs: the https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?b...;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=0;src=postname

    It would be appreciated if you can share some thought with me!

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry, can't get into post, and not interested in opening up yet another account and email. How about posting them on Imgur? A PA radiograph by definition is taken at an acute angle and is not used for checking crown margins. It is much better to have bitewings taken perpendicularly.

    Type in Imgur.com. It's a free site for uploading images. Often used on forums like this.
