Technology that has developed and integrated with digital solution in personal practice has changed the diagnosis and planning for treatment from two dimension (2D) traditional approach into three dimension (3D) developed techniques. In this generation of technology, the use of Smartphone and tablet has made life simpler. Smartphone provide routine access to seek for information, including medics and dental education. This study aimed to browse a variety of scientific information to understand digital technology support in orthodontic treatment. Digital technology in orthodontic practice could help orthodontics in examination and straightening diagnosis on patients, increase efficiency, accuracy, consistency, and certainty on the results of treatment. Digital technology also could help patients to obtain information, and monitor the treatment teleorthodontics.
