GSID Summer School  “International TMD Camp” 2019

8/13 July 2019 – Marina di Carrara 


Camp Presentation

The challenge for the Summer School of the Italian Study Group on Craniomandibular Disorders (GSID) is to educate a master class of alumni under both clinical and research aspects. In this second edition, an international faculty (hundreds of medline papers and decades of clinical experience will be on the desk summing up the works of all teachers) and participants from all over the world are going to interact for a widespread diffusion of clinical knowledge and for designing future researches in the field of bruxism and temporomandibular disorders.

As the scientific coordinator, I would never forget the first edition, with the ending moments that define it at a glance: a group of new friends who, despite the flight schedules and their willingness to rejoin their loved ones, almost begged for some extra time!

An entire Monday-to-Saturday week, with super-teachers delving deep into the TMD and bruxism practice, is the best available option to see how actually easy is the “truth” in a field that is often perceived as unnecessarily complicated.

During the theoretical lectures and the interactive discussions, participants will learn the TMJ anatomy, summarize the clinical guidelines of the DC/TMD, read MRIs, talk about the prosthodontic and orthodontic implications in TMD patients, approach the multiple-P treatment framework, discuss the behind the scenes of the bruxism consensus paper, increase their basic research knowledge.

Hands-on sessions on patients, also featuring some first visit assessments, will reinforce the concept that TMDs are primarily conditions due to an emotional-driven muscle overload of the stomatognathic system, in which a host response determines the different clinical features and time frame of first onset. With about 20 patients to be seen “live”, receiving or controlling oral appliances, undergoing arthrocentesis, and/or being counseled, it is hard to imagine how to give and receive more.

The inaugural keynote lecture by Daniel Paesani on the past and present of temporomandibular disorders, the invaluable clinical research expertise of Michail Koutris and his comments on the DC/TMD guidelines, and the everyday skills of Antonio Romero Garcia to manage patients will be sure defining moments of this 2019 edition. And what about the tutors? Alessandro Bracci, the father of cognitive approaches to awake bruxism, Luca Guarda Nardini, the master of TMJ arthrocentesis, Ricardo Dias, the perfect alumnus to show how to change clinical life in your TMD practice, and Marzia Segù, the nice combination specialist for orthodontics and orofacial pain…a great team to translate research and theory into practice.

In the end, the icing on the cake – a nice talk on the diagnostic guidelines for bruxism, on the way to their elaboration…

I’ll be really looking forward to meet you for another GSID STEP (Sharing, Teaching, Education, Peer-to-Peer) experience…and to deliver our main “teaching”: when easy things seem complicated, change teachers, and choose the ones who WALK THE TALK!

Waiting for you in Marina di Carrara, Italy, from July 8th to 13th, 2019!
