As obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has become popular to the public, some orthodontists without sound knowledge of sleep medicine use the term "airway friendly orthodontics" for the marketing purpose. At this lecture, the following issues will be addressed. Studies and controversies between breathing and craniofacial growth in 1970s and 1980s, pathophysiology of (pediatric) OSA, natural history of OSA, limitation of current treatment modalities for (pediatric) OSA, limitation of 3D images for OSA patients and studies, under-diagnosed and under-evaluated (pediatric) OSA, and how to involve the managements for (pediatric) OSA as orthodontists.
