Benefits of the Panthera Connection System

This innovative system transfers forces in the horizontal plane. It reduces muscle pain and stress on the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Since the retaining rods and the pivot points located on the triangles of the lower retainer and on the anchor points of the upper retainer are elevated, vertical forces are suppressed. The fact that there are no vertical forces limits the retention of the retainers to strong teeth, which increases comfort and, consequently, improves patient compliance to the treatment. The device works in the same direction than the muscles and the design minimizes the size and the retention force of the retainers to provide an improved comfort and protect the teeth.

The traction mechanism allows the closing of the mouth while reducing tension in the joints. The closing of the mouth contributes to nasal breathing, which reduces vibrations resulting in snoring, as well as collapsing causing episodes of apnea.

The Panthera device facilitates lateral and vertical movements during sleep. Consequently, it is also possible to breathe through mouth. Wearing the device does not stop the patient from drinking, yawning or talking. The components of the plastic connector system are safe and metal free. There is no risk of swallowing or inhaling the components.

By changing the retaining rods, it is possible to move the jaw forward gradually, one millimeter at a time, in accordance with medical recommendations.
