Bad piston

I have a 97 f250 7.3 with 200000 miles doesn't smoke runs great. A small screw was dropped in the turbo intake on the passenger side head and to make along story short the screw was stuck in number 1 piston, head is fine, should I replace the 1 piston and put new rings on all the pistons and do a mild hone job. Any help would be great.

If you are sure it didn't damage anything, head ect. there there is nothing else you need to do except replace the piston. I have to wonder how the screw got pounded into the piston though, obviously it was hitting something, probably the head. Just make sure everything checks out.
