MAY 4, 2022
Panthera Dental (Quebec, Canada), a global leader in CAD/CAM implant solutions and dental sleep appliances, and Medit (Seoul, South Korea), a global leader in 3D measurement and intraoral scanning, share the same vision: to change the lives of dentists and patients through best-in-class digital dentistry.
Dentists who have already adopted the Medit i500 and i700 intraoral scanners have seen their practices transform through greater speed and efficiency, fewer retakes, lower costs, and improved patient experiences. Now, they have the opportunity to expand their range of services to patients by providing high quality custom-made sleep apnea devices from Panthera Dental, thanks to a seamless integration within the Medit software.
After scanning the patient’s arches and registering the bite, Medit users can simply open the Panthera App from Medit Link, complete the prescription, and with one click send everything directly to Panthera Dental. Within eight days, the D-SAD Classic or X3 will be designed and manufactured by Panthera Dental using its proprietary CAD/CAM process, incorporating the latest AI, robotics, and laser sintering technology. The appliance will then be shipped to the dentist via express courier so the patient can begin treatment in as little as 10 days.
Patient satisfaction is enhanced, not only by the comfort and speed of the scanning process, but also by the performance of the D-SADs, which are made from 100% medical-grade biocompatible type-12 polyamide nylon. This cutting-edge material is light, smooth, strong yet flexible, very durable, and resistant to bruxism. A wide range of plateaus and bands are available, allowing for over 300 design combinations to maximize comfort and tongue space, and minimize side effects, regardless of the complexity of the patient’s morphology. D-SADs are also uniquely simple for the patient to adjust and care for at home.
“It is our great pleasure to announce a successful collaboration with Panthera Dental. With a company that has long been a companion of Medit, we have developed another level of partnership, and we are eager to provide a seamless workflow to our users. This integration will provide both convenience and efficiency for our clinic users as well as our lab users,” said Inhaeng Cho, Medit’s Chief Strategy Officer.
