Abstract

In the current work are discussed a series of communicability techniques to increase scientific visualization in the case of orthodontics, in an off-line interactive system. This interactive system can be defined as a kind of guideline that has survived the passing of time. Additionally, the design categories are described that have allowed to draw up a high quality system with scarce financial resources, since the software and the hardware currently used can be regarded as of domestic use. It is also made apparent how a simple information structure, joined to the dynamic and static means, can facilitate the diffusion of science among the inexperienced users. Finally, a brief state of the art is made of scientific visualization.
