Take advantage of Narval CAD/CAM technology

Thanks to CAD/CAM, Narval appliance design can easily be customized. Standardised processes and digital technology aims at high-quality appliances. Our CAD software simulates mandibular movements and calculates the retention forces and distribution for each patient. Devices are light but designed to be strong 5 and durable 4.

From intra-oral scanning to CAD/CAM manufacturing

ResMed pioneered the use in Europe of CAD/CAM with 3D printing to create high-precision oral appliances to match the patient’s specific mouth anatomy. Now, we’ve taken innovation one step further by integrating digital impressions into our manufacturing process.
