Surgical Orthodontics for Aligners and Airway

Join us on January 31, 2024 as we present the Jacobi Medical Center/Mount Sinai Surgical Orthodontic Symposium. This year's lecture will focus on two topics: surgery & aligners, and airway-focused orthognathics. The symposium will be held at the Stern Auditorium at Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine, at 1468 Madison Ave (between 101st and 102nd Sts) in New York City.

The 2024 Jacobi Surgical Orthodontic Symposium is focused on two important topics in orthodontics: aligners and airway.

Aligners are an increasingly common tool for orthodontists and can be very effective in the treatment of patients requiring orthognathic, but understanding how these cases should be set up, how to communicate with the technicians and verifying the bites with surgery in mind is often more complicated than aligners companies may have you believe. The aligner section of the symposium, with information gained from both the literature and extensive experience, will give you the tools to succcessfully navigate this often tricky subject.

The airway is inextricably linked to orthoagnathics and has gained more prominence in everyday orthodontic treatment. Understanding how your treatment planning and clinical decisions can lead to optimal airway results is essential in the treatment of patients with airway compromises. Our experience with evaluating and planning orthodontics and surgery in these patients can help you fully understand how to ensure your patients always receive the optimum airway care.
