Plaster dental casts represent an important item in the process of diagnosis, therapy planning and documenting, both in orthodontics, as well as other areas of dentistry. Dental casts allow us to track occlusal contacts before the therapy as well as the changes during the growth and therapy. Although they do possess many positive features, due to the rapid advancements in technology, their negative sides have became more prominent leading to the more widespread use of digital 3D models as their replacement. In this paper, we present a web based system that allows us, after the casts have been scanned, to produce easily usable digital models, to store them and perform measurements on them. Performed measurements are suitable for futher processing and analysis.
