Great Lakes Orthodontics Ltd, Tonawanda, NY, in partnership with ResMed, San Diego, now offers Narval™ CC, a CAD/CAM custom-made mandibular repositioning device (MRD). Narval CC is designed for patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), as well as those who are unable to comply with CPAP treatment. It can also be used as a first line treatment for snoring in the absence of OSA.
According to the company, Narval CC's patented optimized retention of the mandible (ORM) articulation promotes mouth closing and physiological breathing during sleep, by keeping the mandible in a forward position by retaining it, rather than pushing it. Narvall CC is made of resilient and durable biocompatible polymer material. It is metal-free, flexible, light weight, easy to titrate, and adjustable.
