The Panthera D-SAD is a dental appliance that can be used for the treatment of snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnea.
The appliance is made of type 12 polyamide, a resistant biocompatible nylon.
The Panthera D-SAD is recommended to be prescribed for the treatment of snoring, mild to moderate sleep apnea, and severe sleep apnea for patients who do not tolerate the CPAP treatment or comply with it1.

The Panthera D-SAD is the smallest device in the industry and it is the only one that is entirely printed using CAD/CAM technology.
The Panthera Dental team uses its own proprietary software to design the Panthera D-SAD. From a 3D scan of the stone model or intra-oral scanning, each device is designed specifically for your patient. Thanks to our state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology, you will obtain a perfectly adapted device, unlike hand-crafted appliances. Our procedure provides more predictability for a completely customized device.
The unique titration mechanism of the Panthera D-SAD uses rods made of the same biocompatible polymer as the device. The length of the rods can vary from 16 to 36 mm and can be adjusted in 0.5-mm increments for a highly accurate and customized advancement. Those rods are designed to resist to bruxism and they will never elongate. Moreover, they will not disengage during sleep thanks to the unique way they connect to the device. We also offer rods specifically designed for heavy bruxism.
In order to accommodate every patient, we offer a wide range of plates for tailored contact surfaces, from our standard one to a customized anterior pad. Since the D-SAD can be adapted for every possible situation, it is suitable for all types of patients.
Likewise, an extensive choice of bands is available upon ordering. The band plays a key role in regards to comfort and retention of the device and must be designed with care. Consequently, our band designs optimize the dental experience, without compromising the treatment of snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.
The Panthera D-SAD has the CE mark, complies with the Canadian Medical Devices Regulations and has received FDA 510(k) clearance for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
