iCAT® 3-D Dental Imaging

Aspen Ridge Dental is enhancing treatment planning and patient care with the advanced digital imaging technology of the i‑CAT®.

The Aspen Ridge Dental office of Dr. Stuart Youmans, Dr. Melissa Youmans and Dr. Ben Emery, conveniently located in central Wyoming, is now using the latest in dental imaging technology, the i-CAT®, a Cone Beam 3-D dental imaging system. Cone Beam technology is quickly advancing the dental industry's leading approach to treatment planning and diagnosis. With a quick scan around the patient's head, our dentists are able to view 3-D patient anatomy to accomplish more precise evaluation for predictable treatment results in shorter appointment times for the patient.


Our doctors have chosen this technology to enhance treatment care for patients to obtain highly accurate and detailed three-dimensional views of all anatomies such as bone, teeth, tooth orientation, tooth and nerve relation, airways and sinuses. This 3-D dental imaging is used for dental implant planning, TMJ and airway analysis, orthodontic and oral surgery planning, and to detect pathologies such as cysts and tumors.

We can now take an immediate scan for patients with lower radiation dosage and without the inconvenience of sending them to a hospital. Once the scan is complete, our doctors are able to share an immediate visual diagnosis to help our patients truly visualize and better understand treatment options. These preoperative scans are easily shared with other doctors, helping the Aspen Ridge Dental office perform less invasive procedures through increased precision, thus reducing risks for patients.
