Myofunctional therapy (MFT) has been reported to be an alternative treatment to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), but compliance and long-term outcome in the children were considered as an issue. A prospective study was performed on age-matched children submitted to MFT or to a functional oral device used during sleep (passive MFT) and compared with no-treatment control group. Compliance is a major problem of MFT, and MFT will have to take into consideration the absolute need to have continuous parental involvement in the procedure for pediatric OSA.
