Dentsply Sirona has signed an agreement to collaborate with Panthera Dental to offer a digital workflow for custom-made sleep devices for those with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Dentsply Sirona's Primescan intraoral scanner will be used to create Panthera's custom-made digital sleep apnea devices (D-SADs). Primescan provides a complete full-arch scan, which can be transferred securely using the Dentsply Sirona Connect Case Center or via stereolithography (STL) file, depending on the country.
Within 15 days, the D-SAD will be designed and manufactured by Panthera's CAD/CAM process in its manufacturing plant using numerous digital, robotic, and automated technologies. It is then shipped to the dental professional via multinational express delivery service.
