Sleep apnea treatment SICAT Air
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 workfow.
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
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.

Dentsply Sirona Imaging offers 3 models of 3D X-ray units: Galileos Comfort Plus, Orthophos SL 3D and Orthophos XG 3D
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 hand-out support the consultation with your patients.
