New Partnership with Panthera Sleep Offers Doctors More Options for Sleep Appliances

Carestream Dental has partnered with Panthera Sleep, which fabricates appliances to treat snoring and sleep apnea. Doctors can easily send digital impressions and other files created with the CS 3600 directly to Panthera Sleep software to have an appliance designed.  

“Carestream Dental is dedicated to developing a strong network of partners to meet all clinicians’ needs,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, Carestream Dental, said. “As the use of intraoral scanners continues to grow to aid in the treatment sleep disorders, partnerships like what we now offer through Panthera Sleep will be even more important.”

The CS 3600 is highly intelligent intraoral scanner that captures digital impressions in stunning HD 3D. Live scanning feedback helps users improve their scanning in real time. An Intelligent Matching Systems ensures missing information in the dataset can easily be filled in before the files—available as open .STL or .PLY—are sent to Panthera.

“When it comes to accuracy and faster turnaround for sleep appliances, the CS 3600 is an easy and efficient way to proceed,” Gabriel Robichaud, president and cofounder, Panthera Sleep, said. “The scans are securely transferred to Panthera engineers for design and the result is a custom-made appliance.”

Panthera Sleep designs, develops, manufactures and markets high-end mandibular advancement devices (MAD) for the treatment of snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnea.
