AT HOME HOW TO TAKE DENTAL PHOTOS

 
Do you have a question for STO about your teeth that is difficult to describe into words? Please take some photos for us and email the pictures with your question to info@worldofsmiles.com. All you need are 2 spoons (or just your fingers) and a buddy to take the photos for you. The following are the main types of photos that will be very useful in helping us to answer your question.

• Make sure your flash is on
• Try to capture just your mouth and teeth if possible
• Relax your lips – don’t make them tense
• **Keep your teeth together! Bite on your back teeth during the photo

Front Photo

 

Pull both cheeks outwards and bite on your back teeth.

Side Photo

       

Pull back on one side. On the other side take your other spoon or your index and third finger to keep lips apart.

Upper or Lower Photo

 

Upper Photo – Tilt head back and pull cheeks/upper lips in the direction of the top of your head. Try to capture as much of the biting surface of your teeth as possible.

 

Lower photo – Tilt head down and pull cheeks/lower lips down towards your chin. Keep your tongue towards the back of your mouth. Try to capture as much of the biting surface of your teeth as possible.
