Transposition of tooth #27 with tooth #26

Transposition of tooth #27 with tooth #26.
 #26 is located to the distal of #27

This 53 year old male, a recent immigrant to the USA, had never had his teeth cleaned prior to seeing me. 
He had generalized tooth brush abrasion with minimal areas of decay. 
 He had generalized 5-8mm pockets in the posterior.  I performed four quads of SRP in two separate appointments.  He'll return in a month for re-eval to determine the need of further perio treatment.

My Youngest Patient to Date

This patients mother called for an appointment because her two week old baby had teeth.  The front desk scheduled him with the hygiene dept. :)  These prenatal teeth were very loose.  The mother was told to wiggle them and they would be out that day.
