Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSA) is a common but often unrecognized disorder caused by pharyngeal collapse during sleep and is characterized by disrupted sleep, frequent awakening, snoring and consequently day time sleepiness. OSA is caused by a combination of anatomic and neuro motor factors that is by superimposition of structural abnormalities upon inherently compressible airway. Tonsils and adenoids combined with upper airway neuromotor tone and genetic factors play a role in causing OSA. Behavioural, medical ,dental and surgical options are available fot treatment. This poster highlighted he role of dentists in the clinical evaluation, diagnosis and treatment options for children suffering from OSA. It provides insight into the Oral Appliance Therapy which advocates the use of MRD`s(Mandibular Repositioning Devices) and TRD`s (Tongue Retaining devices)for the treatment of OSA. Orthodontic therapy is also recommended as a treatment option for OSA.
