X-ray of Marie O'Day

 

The image is a side view or lateral x-ray taken on Polaroid photographic film (that's why it looks like a positive instead of a negative image).  The "dark" object in her mouth is her upper denture. 

 

It's made of a material called "vulcanite".  The process was patented by one of the Goodyear brothers in the mid 1800's

 

The other thing that is significant is the presence of her upper third molar, or "wisdom" tooth.  She lost her other upper teeth, but that tooth survived.  Actually, both of her "wisdom" teeth are present.  The presents of these teeth help us age her, she is at least in her late teens early 20's.
