Panthera Dental is proud to launch its Angulated Screw Channel – a solution that works with original manufacturer screws.

Quebec City, July 7, 2017
Panthera Dental introduces its newest feature, one that will solve many problems in implant dentistry. Starting immediately, you can solve the bad positioning of dental implants by opting for an Angulated Screw Channel, which is now available with the majority of Panthera Dental’s products.

The main feature of our solution is that it is the first solution in the world that keeps the original geometry of the screw seating, thus allowing for the use of the original screw from the implant manufacturer.

Our technology allows us to angle the channel up to 25° using a special screwdriver we manufacture ourselves. This screwdriver has a patented shape that fits into the original hex of the implant. This unique solution also brings some major benefits that cannot be found with other technologies:

-Uniform distribution of forces in the seat/screw head area

-Unidirectional stress applied to the implant, reducing implant failure rate

-Bridge passivity is maintained

“I am thrilled by this solution. Our team of engineers worked hard to avoid using a third-party screw that can create problems commonly seen on the market. Keeping the original screw was a challenge that my team was proud to take up and they succeeded in developing a unique solution that will make a positive difference in the fixed industry.”
- says Bernard Robichaud, Co-Founder of Panthera Dental.

Customers can order now and get this solution along with any implant bridge or implant bar in Titanium, Chrome-Cobalt, Zirconia, PMMA and PEKKTON.

Panthera Dental’s Angulated Screw Channel is protected by patents.

Quebec City, March 2, 2017
Panthera Dental is thrilled to announce the release of its new product: THE DIAMARTTM by Dominico Cascione, CDT. The DiamartTM is a two-part implant bridge. The bridge, which can be milled in Zirconia, Pekkton® or PMMA, is supported by a titanium implant bar, a combination that gives the DiamartTM a long list of benefits.

Furthermore, the restoration is 100% retrievable. The Zirconia supra structure can be segmented into multiple pieces. It provides solutions when the clinician is challenged with non-ideal implant angulations and allows a definitive restoration that satisfies the requirements of fit, esthetics and biomechanics while making the restoration retrievable.

The Lock’n’Release Bar Received the Inside Dental Technology 2016 Reader’s Choice Technology Award

Quebec City, September 7, 2016
Panthera Dental has always offered innovative solutions suitable for most patients. In February, Panthera Dental added the Lock’n’ReleaseTM bar to its broad range of products. Last July, this patented mechanism was chosen by the readers of the American magazine Inside Dental Technology as a 2016 Reader’s Choice Technology Award winner.

The Lock’n’ReleaseTM bar meets the needs of many people. It was developed specically for easy installation and removal. This revolutionary and unique bar allows patients with dexterity disabilities, such as people with Parkinson’s disease, to easily remove their prosthesis since the bar only requires 40 grams of pressure. Moreover, the Lock’n’ReleaseTM bar is used by seniors and people with decreasing independence in home-care centers. Dental prostheses including the Lock’n’ReleaseTM system can be easily removed by a third party.

The Lock’n’ReleaseTM bar comprises some special components. One of these interesting parts is a correcting angular custom abutment. The abutment can be manufactured with an angle of up to 30° and can fit with the majority of implant systems. The result: a perfect parallel restoration.

Panthera Dental Creates Panthera Sleep, a New Division Specialized in Sleep-Related Products and Solutions

Quebec City, June 9, 2016
Because of fast-growing demand, Panthera Dental has decided to create a distinct division for its line of sleep products, with dedicated teams of R&D and Marketing. From now on, customers have access to a new web portal at www.pantherasleep.com to learn more about our products. Moreover, a new section for patients is now available on the website to inform the public of the benefits of the D-SAD, Panthera Dental’s patented CAD/CAM sleep appliance.

At the same time, Panthera Dental is proud to integrate the compatibility of the D-SAD with 3Shape’s Trios and Align Technology’s iTero scanners. Customers can now use these two intra-oral scanning technologies to order their appliances. This method increases accuracy and creates a more interesting customer experience for the end-user. Using intra-oral scanning technology also reduces the turnaround time required for the production of the final appliance.

To add new features to its well-adapted products, Panthera Dental has formed a partnership with Braebon to introduce the Dentitrac, a sensor chip that measures patient compliance and wearing times for each night. Thanks to this technology, unions and other members of the transportation industry can use the D-SAD and know that their staff is treated for sleep apnea.

We are so thrilled by this new division and its new logo. We will be able to strengthen our position in the sleep industry, and Panthera Sleep also gives us a better platform to launch future projects. We have many ideas on which we will be working for the coming year that will change, again, the way we do dental sleep medicine,” said Bernard Robichaud, co-founder of Panthera Dental.

Panthera Dental Launches 2 New Implant Bars: the Integrated Bar™ and the Lock ‘n’ Release™

Quebec City, February 16, 2016
Panthera Dental is proud to add two new bars to its extensive line of products. The new bars are innovative and unique. Indeed, both were developed in collaboration with clients to create a product adapted to the current needs of the market.

The “Integrated Bar™” is a wrap-around implant bar, with the benefit that it can be removed by the patient. Once the bar is removed, the patient only has to clean the small abutment. To maintain the bar in place, a system including colored nylons is used. With its practical design, the system can be used directly on the head of the implant with an angle of up to 30 degrees.

The “Lock ‘n’ Release™” is an upgraded version of a ten-year-old concept developed by Dr. Richard Taché and Mr. André Archambault RDT. At first, the system did not include an implant bar. It was intended to allow the prosthesis to be removed by pressing two buttons. With the help of Panthera Dental, the concept was updated to a CAD/CAM version for a custom adjustment and now comprises a bar. Thanks to this simple yet advanced mechanism, patients with dexterity issues or their nursing staff can remove the bar themselves for improved hygiene.

Panthera Dental Announces FDA Clearance of Panthera Anti-Snoring Device

Quebec City, January 6, 2015
Panthera Dental announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the Panthera Anti- Snoring Device. This device is a removable intraoral device used for treating snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. It consists of two custom fabricated splints that fit separately over the upper and lower teeth and engage by means of adjustable rods.

The device functions as a mandibular repositioner, maintaining the lower jaw in a forward position during sleep. This mechanical protrusion acts to increase the patient’s pharyngeal space, improving their ability to exchange air during sleep.

The device is a prescription device customized for each patient and has an adjustment mechanism enabling the amount of mandibular advancement to be set by the dentist or physician at the time of fitting the device. The device can be adjusted only by the dentist. The maximum protrusion of the device is 15 mm in 1-mm increments.

“We are very proud to announce the Panthera Anti-Snoring device to the US market” said Jerry Vogel, Executive VP USA of Panthera Dental. “This particular product is one of the smallest, most effective and patient-friendly devices in the market today. The potential and the impact of sleep challenges for the dental industry is enormous and will add significant value to dental practices who can now impact so many patients and their families lives in a completely new way”.
