Narval CCTM

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

Sleep apnoea and snoring may seem like minor conditions, but they can have a significant impact on 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 offers patients greater comfort than ever before, which helps them adhere to therapy. Narval CC is a mandibular repositioning device (MRD) that's designed specifically for the treatment of adult obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and snoring. Narval CC uses an optimised articulation method that maintains the mandible in an advanced position, along the occlusal plane, to provide superior patient comfort while enabling effective treatment.

At ResMed, we believe that efficacy and compliance are directly related to comfort. By decreasing bulk with the use of lighter materials, expanding tongue space and enabling freedom of mandibular movement by design, Narval CC brings a different level of comfort to patients. Also, patients can still speak and drink liquids while using their device.

 

Innovative design for greater comfort 

The innovative and unique design of Narval CC works with the patient's anatomy, resulting in a more natural and comfortable experience. For example, the force of retention works along the occlusal plane or jawline and maintains the mandible in a protruded position instead of pushing it forward like most MRDs. This relieves stress on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)1. The elevated articulation point keeps the connectors parallel with the patient's jawline, which complements the jaw's natural articulation and makes the device more comfortable to wear.

 

Narval CC focuses retention on select teeth, relying on material friction and unique design to secure the device in place. As well as maintaining efficacy, this promotes closed-mouth and lip seal for natural physiological breathing during sleep1.

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 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 the highest degree of customisation to suit the complex dental anatomy of individual patients.

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

 

Collaborative expertise

OSA affects approximately 5% of the population and can have very serious consequences. Narval CC is innovative in the way it leverages medical and dental expertise to treat OSA effectively and significantly improve your patient's quality of life.

Dental practitioners have a vital role to play in the treatment of sleep apnoea, alongside sleep physicians, ENT surgeons, pulmonologists, neurologists and neuro-psychiatrists. Proper patient selection, diagnosis and treatment for this condition depend on effective cooperation within this multi-disciplinary network of specialists.
