Why Choose Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska for an I-CAT Scan? June 1, 2016

Why Choose Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska for an I-CAT Scan?, Anchorage, Alaska

When you need dental surgery, you want the procedure to be successful. At Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska in Anchorage, when the team needs detailed information about a patient's mouth, teeth, jaw nerves, facial bones, and sinuses, they use an I-CAT. This 3D imaging technology provides a 0.01-millimeter measurement accuracy, which makes it ideal for diagnosing dental problems, such as impacted teeth, and for creating a solid treatment plan.

More Convenient & Less Expensive

Not only does the I-CAT give the oral surgeons at Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska a more predictable outcome for a patient's dental surgery, it is also more convenient and less costly than the CT exams performed at hospitals. When patients require a CAT scan, they are allowed to remain seated in an open environment. This allows them to be more comfortable and provides a more natural anatomical orientation during the scan. Once the scan is complete, the data will be transferred to a computer, where they will be formatted and immediately displayed. This allows the cosmetic dental care team at Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska to quickly evaluate the examined region.

Good Utilization
