Local Periodontist To Display Drawings and Paintings at Morristown Medical Center

MORRISTOWN, N.J. — Dr. David Goteiner, a Chester-based periodontist and artist, will display selected drawings and paintings at a solo art exhibit from Aug. 4 through Sept. 14 at Morristown Medical Center. The exhibit is the latest in a series sponsored by the Women’s Association of Morristown Medical Center.

Goteiner has selected 34 pieces that will be displayed in the main corridor of the Medical Center (Madison 1). Part of the proceeds of the art show will go to the Woman’s Association of Morristown Medical Center.

Two of the pieces are Rendevous and Venezia. Rendevous is a painting of a Norwegian three-masted training schooner plying the North Sea on its way to a meeting with mythical creatures. Venezia is a study in light and shadows on Ria de la Vesta, Canal of the Tailors. It portrays a typical scene from Venice that disappears just as it captures your heart.

Born in Mannheim, Germany, Goteiner came to this country as a baby and developed a love for the arts at an early age. In 1982, he met highly regarded painter Anatoly Ivanov, then a recent immigrant from Russia. From then on, he has pursued his passion to paint and has continued to study with Ivanov.

Not all of Goteiner’s art is on a canvas. He is a practicing periodontist who sees patients in Chester. He received his dental and specialty training at Columbia and Harvard universities. His work restoring teeth and gums is, itself, a form of artistry. He also teaches at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark. He lives in Sunset Lake with his wife, Carrie.

Implant Complications

The last 20 years has seen a revolution in dentistry, especially in the field of Dental Implants .Gone are the days where patients have to suffer with loose fitting dentures, and removable partials that cause damage to adjacent teeth. Dental Implants are here to stay and are overwhelmingly successful when placed and restored by experienced Dentists and Dental Surgeons.

But like anything, despite our best efforts we are seeing more and more complications with implants. This is a condition we call “Peri-Implantitis”. Many times, implants can get infections under the gum-line which can result in bone loss around the implant, and in some cases loss of the implant itself. Complications due to systemic disease, medications and simply enough, aging can all lead to this problem.

Until recently, the only treatment for an “ailing” implant was either extensive surgical repair and in most cases, removal of the implant and waiting for a new one to be placed.

With the advent of LAPIP, which is a specific laser surgery procedure which does not involve a scalpel or stitches we are now able in many cases to treat the infections and arrest the disease, and in some cases regenerate new bone around the implant itself!

LAPIP—which stands for Laser Assisted Peri-Implant Procedure, and like LANAP which is done to treat gum infections around teeth, is the only FDA cleared laser procedure to treat ailing dental implants.

Dr. David Goteiner has been performing these procedures for almost a decade. And, in addition to his private practice, is an instructor at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry, where he trains other dentists and surgeons from around the world so that they too can help their patients conquer this significant disease. Dr. Goteiner is one of only 40 qualified instructors and is the first Periodontist to perform these procedures in the Northern New Jersey area.
