The Panthera D-SAD (Digital-Sleep Apnea Device) is a mandibular advancement device for the treatment of snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnea. The appliance is made of type 12 polyamide, a resistant biocompatible nylon. It is recommended for the treatment of snoring, mild to moderate sleep apnea, and severe sleep apnea for patients who do not tolerate the CPAP treatment or comply with it.
The D-SAD is the smallest device in the industry and it is the only one that is entirely printed using CAD/CAM technology. From a 3D scan of the stone model or intra-oral scanning, each appliance is designed specifically for your patient.
The unique titration mechanism of the D-SAD uses rods which are made of the same biocompatible polymer as the device. The lengths of the rods vary from 21 mm to 35 mm and can be adjusted in 0.5 mm increments. Each D-SAD appliance comes with three additional sets of rods to allow for additional 3 mm protrusive movements.
In order to accommodate every patient, we offer a wide range of plates for tailored contact surfaces, from our standard one to a customized anterior pad. Since the D-SAD can be adapted for every possible situation, it is suitable for all types of patients.
Likewise, an extensive choice of bands is available upon ordering. The band plays a key role in regards to comfort and retention of the device and must be designed with care. Consequently, our band designs optimize the dental experience, without compromising the treatment of snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.
