Sleep Apnea Treatment

The first 3D solution for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) therapy

SICAT Air is the first 3D solution to allow not only the analysis of the upper airway but also visualization and planning of the appliance-based treatment true to anatomy. The combination of the patient's 3D X-ray and optical surface data allow for a completely digital workflow.

Analysis, treatment planning and the order of a SICAT OPTISLEEP appliance can be done in one single patient session.

Your Benefits at a Glance

The first 3D solution for obstructive sleep apnea therapy:

Direct visualization of constrictions

Thanks to the automatic segmentation of the airways in 3D

High patient acceptance

Integrated tools for patient education clarify the need for treatment

TMJ included

For the first time, taking the mandibular joints (with corresponding 3D x-ray volumes) into account

Integration with CEREC for a fully digital workflow

Import your CEREC data for a purely digital workflow: no physical model is necessary

Step by Step: Obstructive Sleep Apnea Therapy with SICAT Air

1. X-ray scan

The 3D X-ray data are recorded using either Galileos Comfort Plus or Orthophos SL 3D. The degree of protrusion can be set by simply using a bite fork such as the George Gauge.  

2. Record the optical surface

Recording the CEREC data of the patient's upper and lower jaw and subsequent fusion with the 3D data within the software.

3. Visualize the constrictions

With just two clicks, SICAT Air allows automatic segmentation of the upper airway. All parameters required are shown for each sectional view and facilitate the analysis of the airway.

Constrictions are highlighted in color and the upper airway can be examined precisely thanks to the endoscopy feature. The variety of display options and an automatically generated patient handout support the consultation with your patients.

4. Order the therapeutic appliance SICAT Optisleep online

Order SICAT Optisleep with the click of a button and present the appliance to the patient during the second patient visit. SICAT Optisleep is a two-piece appliance, offering great comfort due to its slim design. The durable material and connector design is specifically stable. SICAT Optisleep enables the sealing of the lips to encourage normal breathing.

The exchangeable connectors come in 10 sizes to provide an optimal flexibility for maximum durability.
