Dr Derek Mahony

Adult Orthodontics

In the last 25 years, one aspect of orthodontic treatment, called “Adult” orthodontics has become more and more popular. As the name applies, this treatment is somewhat different from conventional treatment even though both involve moving teeth.

Some people define adult orthodontic treatment as being simple treatment done in a relatively short period of time i.e. 6-9 months, with limited treatment objectives such as not correcting skeletal problems.

For many adults, the orthodontic treatment is as an adjunct to periodontal and prosthetic therapy e.g. the placement of a bridge or an implant may require the uprighting of abutment teeth.

Another major objective of adult orthodontic treatment is to enhance the anterior aesthetics. This normally involves relatively minor rotations, closing incisor spaces or reducing the protrusion of the upper incisor teeth.

This lecture will cover the following points:

1. Molar uprighting

2. Forced extrusion to modify the height of the alveolar process

3. Changing the size and contour of the inter and intra radicular septum

4. Infra-bony defect treatment

Biography Dr Mahony:

Specialist Orthodontist

Derek Mahony is a Sydney based Specialist Orthodontist who has spoken to thousands of practitioners about the benefits of interceptive orthodontic treatment. Early in his career Dr Mahony learned from leading clinicians the dramatic effect functional appliance therapy can afford patients in orthodontic treatment. He has been combining the fixed and functional appliance approach ever since. His lectures are based on the positive impact such a combined treatment approach has had on his orthodontic results and the benefits this philosophy provides from a practice management viewpoint.
After completing his Dental Degree at the University of Sydney Dr Mahony proceeded to the United Kingdom where he completed his Masters Degree in Orthodontics at the Eastman Dental Hospital, Institute of Dental Surgery, London.

Further studies led to the successful completion of a Diploma in Orthodontics at the the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. Dr. Mahony has also passed the Royal College of Dentists in Canada post graduate examination in the field of orthodontics.

Dr Mahony has passed examination leading to a postgraduate qualification in Dentofacial Orthopaedics from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow. He has also attained his Membership in Orthodontics qualification from the Royal College of Surgeons, England.

Dr Mahony has been seeing an average of 250 patients per week for the last decade and has gained a vast amount of experience which he can pass on to clinicians so that they can come to appreciate the key elements of his combined treatment approach. He currently has over 3000 orthodontic patients in active treatment and has been a key note speaker at the International Orthodontic Summit meetings, the International Association of Orthodontics meetings, and the American Association of Functional Orthodontics meetings. He is considered by some to be the “next leading lecturer on functional/fixed orthodontics.” Dr Mahony will provide a stimulating presentation for clinicians wishing to advance their treatment results via a simplistic step by step approach.

Dr Mahony approaches his orthodontic diagnosis from a “facial profile” point of view. He sets his treatment goals to create not just straight teeth, but beautiful faces and healthy temporomandibular joints.

Dr Mahony is contributing editor to the Journal of Clinical Paediatric Dentistry, International Orthodontic Journal and Spanish Journal of Dentofacial Orthopaedics.
