Dr. Haim Fedida can treat gum problems with laser dentistry treatment in his Jackson Heights, NY dental office. Periodontitis, or gum disease, is a common dental issue that can lead to gum recession and inflammation. Dental lasers are a general dental treatment that can remove infected gum tissues as well as calculus found on the teeth underneath the gums. Dr. Fedida provides LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) for patients with gum disease. LANAP is a dental laser treatment that improves the health of both the teeth and gums.
Benefits of Dental Lasers

- Minimal bleeding or swelling
- Treatment without sutures
If you have periodontitis and think you would benefit from laser dentistry treatment, contact our office. Because dental lasers are highly precise, they are able to preserve the natural gums by removing only infected gum tissue.
Before treatment, Dr. Fedida will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. This evaluation is done to determine if the LANAP procedure is the right solution for your specific needs. LANAP is a dental laser treatment that can be used to remove diseased soft tissues and prevent gum recession or even tooth loss.
LANAP allows patients to remove gum disease without the need for surgery. First, the dental laser is gently placed between the gum and teeth to remove diseased tissue inside the pocket. This kills the germs that cause gum infections. Then, we remove calculus from the teeth with root cleaners and antibacterial rinses. Finally, the dental laser is used at the bottom of the pocket to sterilize the area.
Precise dental lasers can help reattach the teeth and gums. They not only stimulate the body’s healing response but are also safe for diabetic patients and patients who take aspirin.
