Jose Luis De La Hoz Aizpurua: Friday April 20th 2018 : Birmingham

Splints- Brace that bite. An update in design, pain & TMD management.

A comprehensive scientific update on TMD, pain pathways, mechanisms  and occlusal appliance design, their indications and role within the cascade of pain.

Dear BSOS member,
Please without a moments hesitation enshrine the above dates about in your postgraduate diary

I heard both these lecturers last year in Chicago and was utterly captivated by their presentations: Not only do they have enormous knowledge and insight into our field but both have provided a paradigm shift in how I now view the importance of our work as dentists, our ability to help our patients but also for ourselves: on-going health.

Dr Jose de la Hoz works as TMD specialist and oral surgeon in Madrid.
I think he will provide us with greater depth of knowledge to provide better care. For me it is always what I don’t know or understand that causes me care to falter or worse land me in hot waters as a clinician!
Jose will cover 4 different areas including updating us on
– How exactly do we now view pain and its pathway? What happens in the brain?
– What happens when the system ‘overheats’ and everything hurts?
– What is it if it is not tooth ache or TMD?
– The latest on oral appliances
