3D technology has been evolving and developing in the health field in such a fast way recently that these dates it can be used for diagnosis and treatment planification in different medical disciplines and its use in orthodontic treatments is not an exception.

Despite this technological advance, the usual methodology used by clinicians in their daily orthodontic practice is still 2D measurement technique, using both radiographs and photographs in order to make a good diagnosis and treatment plan.
