It's not an easy task. Since there is no specific edge, brightness or anything that defines the shape of each tooth, I reckon the best solution would be using some texton-like analysis.
You need some samples of teeth images to compare with your X-ray. Doing this comparison you should be able to extract teeth from the image.
