Episode 6: Orthodontics and Airways

Kate invites Dr Derek Mahony to talk about how modern day orthodontics is more than aesthetics - it's all about airway health! They discuss the importance for early intervention by a multidisciplinary team to support growth and development of a child's palate and jaw, which will influence their breathing, sleep quality and cognitive development. The biochemistry of sleep disordered breathing is even related to bed wetting issues. Dr Mahony is the director of Full Face Orthodontics, whose clinics are throughout Sydney.
