panthera_MADPlanmeca, Helsinki, Finland, announced that its Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner can now be used to produce Panthera Sleep’s Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD).

Panthera Sleep, a division of Panthera Dental, Quebec City, Canada, designs, develops, manufactures, and markets high-end mandibular advancement devices for the treatment of snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnea.

The Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner can be integrated into an orthodontic practice’s workflow to produce Panthera’s MAD. After scanning the upper and lower arches, first alone and then in occlusion, orthodontists can export the scans, which are open standard STL files, to Panthera Sleep.
