Our intra-oral scanning partners

The fully digital manufacturing process for the Narval appliance requires the use of one of our partners' scanners:

Take advantage of IOS technology

Faster turnaround

Reliable scans

Time cost efficiency

Simplified logistics

Improved patient data management

ResMed Live assistance

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.

Narval CC conceived with CAD/CAM process is more effective in reducing AHI than a non-CAD/CAM MRD.
