PRESS RELEASE: CS 3600 Intraoral Scanner Compatible with Narval (TM) CC Starting 15 April in Select Countries*

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 15, 2019

Carestream Dental is pleased to announce its CS 3600 intraoral scanner will be compatible with ResMed’s Narval mandibular repositioning device (MRD) for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and snoring treatment.

“More and more studies are revealing the life-changing benefits of quality sleep, and a sleep appliance can aid tremendously,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, Carestream Dental, said. “But to ensure the perfect fit of an oral appliance, the accuracy of an intraoral scanner, like the CS 3600, is needed for taking digital impressions. As sleep dentistry continues to grow in popularity, such partnerships will help doctors provide new solutions to their patients.”

The CS 3600 is proven** to provide highly accurate full-arch HD 3D impressions. Its acquisition software includes features specific to sleep medicine, such as the Multiple Bite Capture option. Clinicians can easily capture and view up to three different bite registrations, such as normal, open and protruded. Next, clinicians can export the bite matrix files with the dataset to ResMed and complete the online order form on the “Narval Easy” platform for fabrication of the Narval appliance.

By integrating high precision intraoral scanning into its already innovative CAD/CAM manufacturing process, ResMed enables dentists to get access to a 100% digital oral appliance. Overall, it allows an even higher level of quality and service to dental practitioners.

“This fully digital manufacturing process improves the Narval CC’s fit and significantly reduces the level of adjustments needed at chairside,” Karène Valentin, dental sleep marketing director, ResMed, said. “It also saves time by eliminating the need to send impressions by post.”

To help doctors better understand the benefits of using intraoral scanners to manufacture sleep appliances, ResMed is hosting an informational session at IDS 2019. Join Vincent Faure, Carestream Dental, and Karène Valentin, ResMed, in the Speakers Corner on Friday, March 15, at 5:00 pm to learn more about how to order the Narval appliance with a CS 3600 scanner.
