Dental: innovation and technology

At ResMed, we are committed to helping you live life to the fullest.

Sleep apnoea and snoring may seem like minor conditions, but they can have a significant impact on your health, relationships and quality of life. Narval CC™, our next-generation mandibular repositioning device (MRD), is a comfortable, discreet and effective way to treat these conditions.

Learn how patient-focused innovation and technological advancements have placed Narval CC in a class of its own.

Discover the Narval difference

ResMed's Narval CC is a mandibular repositioning device (MRD) designed specifically for the treatment of adult obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and snoring. It holds your jaw in a position that naturally and comfortably keeps your airways open while you sleep.

At ResMed, we believe that the efficacy and results of your treatment are directly related to your comfort. We have used lighter materials, created more space for your tongue and designed Narval CC so you can talk and drink while you're wearing it. These design improvements mean Narval CC offers you a high level of comfort and better results1.

Innovative design for greater comfort

The innovative and unique design of Narval CC works with your anatomy, resulting in a more natural and comfortable experience. For example, Narval CC is designed to complement the structure, position and strength of your jaw. This puts less stress on your body2 and feels more natural.

Precision engineering for a precise fit

Each Narval CC is manufactured to fit that patient's individual anatomy and follow their clinician's prescription. Accurate impressions of your teeth and a protrusive bite registration or anatomical measurements are all that are required to produce a precise fit.

ResMed use the latest in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), known as "CAD/CAM", to custom-make each Narval CC device. This enables a high degree of customisation to suit your unique prescription and complex dental anatomy.

Made of highly resilient and durable biocompatible polymer material, Narval is metal-free, flexible and lightweight.

Collaborative expertise

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) affects approximately 5% of the population and can have very serious consequences3,4. Narval CC is innovative in the way it leverages a wide range of medical and dental expertise to treat OSA and effectively and significantly improve your quality of life.
