The digital volumetric tomography era has begun, and we now have access to significant additional diagnostic information. When moving from 2D to 3D, distances and angles turn into areas and volumes, and more information may take orthodontics to the next level, increasing the scope of what can be done clinically. This chapter shows some simple ways of incorporating 3D analysis into a busy orthodontic office, without the need for special software.
