Technology at Alaska Center for Oral and Facial Surgery
AOFS utilizes the most advanced imaging available in an clinic setting available. The on site CT scanner allows AOFS advanced diagnostics, at a significantly lower cost and radiation dose than that found at the hospital. In addition to this, scans can usually be approved, taken and evaluated in 1 visit. The Cone Beam CT scanner employed at AOFS allows for precise dental implant planning and computer-guided surgery as well as virtual rendering and planning of corrective jaw surgery, trauma surgery or facial reconstruction. Until recently this type of planning was only available with hospital grade imaging; but advances in technology such as that used at AOFS, have allowed physicians to utilize this technology without a hospital visit.
