Periodontal Esthetics and Regeneration
Dr. Feldman received his D.D.S. degree in 1969 from the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry. He served as Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps from 1969-1971. He received his Certificate in Periodontics at Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1973. Dr. Feldman is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Graduate Periodontics in the Department of Periodontology at the University of Florida School of Dentistry. He is a visiting lecturer at the L.D. Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne and at Nova Southeastern
School of Dentistry. He is Past President of the Palm Beach County Dental Association and the Florida Association of Periodontists. He served as an Executive Council Member of the Southern Academy of Periodontology for six years. Dr. Feldman has presented continuing education programs on a variety of subjects, including Autogoneous and Alloplast Bone Grafting in Periodontal Defects, Interdisciplinary therapies to achieve optimal esthetics, Long term results of implant therapies and periodontal regeneration with enamel matrix derivatives. Dr. Feldman lectures locally and nationally on a variety of topics relating to periodontics and implant surgery. Dr. Feldman is a fellow of the American College of Dentists and the Pierre Fauchard Academy. He is currently in private practice in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, FL.
Our program focuses on the multi-dimensional aspects of periodontal esthetics and regeneration and their close associations with a variety of dental disciplines. We have assembled a group of lecturers who will present programs unique to their special interests in creating optimal periodontal esthetics, facial esthetics, periodontal regeneration, orthodontics, maxillofacial surgery, occlusion and advanced restorative dentistry. We also invite your participation in a special symposium on Implants in the Esthetic Zone.
The clinical sessions further assist the development of diagnostic and surgical skills. We invite your participation in our program Periodontal Esthetics and Regeneration.
Periodontal Plastic Surgery and Regeneration – Soft Tissue Enhancement in the Esthetic Zone
Soft tissue grafting for root coverage and pontic site development will be
presented. Single and multi-stage soft tissue enhancement procedures are discussed
including grafts placed during implant surgery.
Esthetic Crown Length Surgery
Bone Grafting and Regeneration in Periodontal and Implant Therapies
A variety of bone grafts including autografts, allografts, xenografts and alloplasts are
demonstrated along with expected outcomes. Guided tissue regeneration with various
membranes, with and without bone grafts and enamel matrix derivative, are demonstrated. Classification of osseous defects, sequence of therapy, new attachment proteins and root preparation techniques are demonstrated. This program allows the student to better understand prognosis and success with current periodontal osseous grafting techniques, materials and membranes. An added program focuses on ridge augmentation, ridge expansion, socket grafting and sinus grafting techniques. A detailed presentation of commercially availabl egrowth factors, bone and membrane products are presented along with their applications.
Development of a Decision Tree for Optimal Function and Esthetics in the Advanced Restorative Patient
Implants in the Esthetic Zone – A Symposium
Biologic Principles, Periodontal Anatomy and Their Relationship to
Bone and Soft Tissue Regeneration in the Esthetic Zone With Dental Implants
The ultimate challenge for the surgeon and restorative dentist is to provide the patient
with a highly cosmetic and functional implant restoration in the esthetic zone. Multiple
issues and challenges need to be considered.
This presentation discusses the importance of implant position, emergence profile,
abutment selection, bone and soft tissue determinants and final restorations.
This program will review the periodontal determinants associated with biologic width
and the effects that implant size and position, as well as abutment designs can have on
preserving bone and soft tissue. Preservation of crestal bone, soft tissue volume and
papillae form are challenges for both the surgeon and restorative dentist.
Topics of importance include:
Orthodontics for the Periodontal Patient – The Missing Link in Esthetic Dentistry
The objective of this course is to emphasize the importance of an interdisciplinary
approach to the treatment of extensive malocclusions in the adult patient. We will touch
on many aspects of how orthodontics, periodontics and ultimately, restorative dentistry,
treatment planned together will result in the most esthetically pleasing result. Extrusion
of anterior teeth to enhance both hard and soft tissue, orthodontic placement of teeth to optimize implant placement and opening the bite to allow the placement of ideal anterior restorations are just a few topics that will be addressed.
Other Topics Will Include:
Altering Facial Esthetics and Skeletal Form with Orthognathic Surgery
The Role of Occlusal Therapy in Dental/ Facial/ Periodontal Esthetics
