A few tips here for people looking to take pictures of their problems and post them to obtain some advice from dentists.
1. Set your digital camera to macro setting (the little flower)
2. Take the picture outside Best in bright light (I'm in Florida so ther's a lot of it) Much better colors
3. Use a spoon and or your fingers to retract the tissues
4. Practice macro focusing ouside your mouth if you have never done it before
5. Take multiple pictures and submit the one in focus
