Panthera Dental to present two abstracts and launch inaugural “Panthera Sleep Research Grant” at the AADSM and AASM/SLEEP 2024 meetings.

April 30, 2024

Panthera Dental (Quebec, Canada), global leader in CAD/CAM dental sleep appliance development, is proud to announce that two distinct abstracts were accepted for poster presentations at the AADSM and AASM/SLEEP Annual Meetings. In addition, a funding opportunity through Panthera for investigator-initiated research proposals will be announced.

The posters and the “Panthera Sleep Research Grant” reflect Panthera’s dedication to advancing dental sleep medicine research.

Titles and descriptions of the accepted abstract presentations for the AADSM are as follows:

Poster #14: Five-Year, Prospective, Multicenter, Real-world Study to Assess the long-term safety, Initial Management, and Effectiveness of a CAD/CAM, 3-D Printed Oral Appliance in the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Updated Interim Analysis.

Panthera is pleased to share preliminary results from their real-world multicenter study, which is being conducted in France. The study mimics current standards of care for providing oral appliance therapy for obstructive sleep apnea patients. One of the most notable differences between France and the US is the criteria for moderate or severe classifications, not mild. The study reports on participants in the first full year, from baseline to 12 months. The preliminary data support robust effectiveness and continued nightly use.

Poster #33: Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of a CAD/CAM, 3-D Printed Oral Appliance to Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Research and development are part of a medical device company’s commitment to demonstrate compliance with ISO 13485 to assess medical device safety and performance. The current study was conducted to meet these requirements and provide a well-researched understanding of the stress/strain(forces) of the Panthera oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea using finite element analysis (FEA). FEA is a well-known mathematical simulation model used in the dental industry. Panthera commissioned a team of scientists with superior expertise to assess the biomechanical effects on teeth and periodontal ligaments. The abstract provides data to support the design and materials for the reduction of forces used in the manufacturing of the Panthera OAT.

“Panthera always placed research and development at the forefront of the company,” said Marc Morisset, Vice President of the Sleep Division at Panthera Dental. “These two ongoing research projects and our new research grant initiative confirm our dedication to continuously improving our patient-matched oral appliances, prioritizing comfort, compliance, and chair time efficiency.”

The grant will allow independent researchers to use Panthera oral appliance therapy to further sleep-related dental and medical knowledge and provide innovative patient care in the dental sleep medicine arena. Panthera is committed to providing monetary funding, Panthera devices, clinical research, and administrative support as necessary. The study submissions open in May with a July 31 deadline. The winner will be announced in the fall of 2024.
