Introduction: Pre-clinical practices in the subject of orthodontics in the degree of Dentistry at the University of Valencia, Spain are necessary for a good diagnosis and treatment. Orthodontics plaster model analysis is one of the most important parts in the diagnosis of dental malocclusions in orthodontics.

Objectives: Firstly, to develop three-dimensional animations for improving teaching diagnosis in orthodontics. Secondly, to assess the students themselves these innovative teaching tools.

Methods: Students analyzed dental malocclusion in the three planes of space and assessed the new teaching tools, comparing them with traditional teaching.

Results: Students could perform the analysis of orthodontics plaster models digitally using new three-dimensional animations. 95% of students assessed positively the activity and 68% felt they could use these new tools for diagnosis in their professional practice.

Conclusions: Three-dimensional animations make teaching and learning easier for our students. We feel that students can improve their diagnose and treatment plan with three-dimensional animations. Students and teachers assessed the new teaching tools positively.
