Seems those implants will support multiple teeth. I noticed that in images for implants that replace all teeth the implants are often in an angle. Did your dentist mention anything?

I asked my dentist the upside implants are not straight he said this is normal for front teeth
I will put bridge on front. I have to wait for 6 months for them to heal . so is this ok
Also looking at other teeth do you see any infection or any thing gone wrong?

Lower right hand side is a mess, I assume you know that?
@comfortdentist knows more about implants than me, hopefully he'll chip in on the rest.

Hi thanks for reply yes I know , I can't afford working on that tooth now will it last a year or two?
I am right now spending my money on upper teeth. The lower tooth is about 8 years old and it is my fault I did not care much about it and did not visit dentist regularly by that time I was a heavy smoker but have stopped smoking 5 years ago and now I understand. I wonder if the lower foot will not get worst for a year or two so I can afford getting a new implant there as well.

Looks like they were placed at an angle to maximize length. While that is no longer considered important in implant dentistry I do suspect that was the reason. For most all implants system we can have cad/cam milled abutments made which are custom parts made to order for you that can correct for angle issues.
Also panoramic x-rays don't show angles well so your positioning could contribute partially to how the image appears.
great that you don't smoke anymore
