Dr. Haim Fedida can treat gum problems with laser dentistry treatment in his East Elmhurst and Jackson Heights, NY dental office. Periodontitis, or gum disease, is a common dental issue that can lead to gum recession and inflammation.
As a general dental treatment, dental lasers 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), an effective gum disease treatment for patients with periodontal disease. LANAP is a dental laser treatment that improves the health of both the teeth and gums. Learn more about this innovative procedure below.
What is LANAP?
LANAP stands for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure. It is an effective alternative to periodontal surgery for the treatment of gum disease. Safe, effective, precise and FDA approved, LANAP has revolutionized the treatment of soft tissue oral disease and gum contouring.
Dr. Haim Fedida and the team at Fedida Family Dentistry and Dental Spa have advanced training in the successful use of LANAP. Dr. Fedida is a certified clinician of LANAP laser therapy. He uses LANAP to help patients restore the health of their gums and reverse damage caused by gum disease.

LANAP Treatment at Fedida Family Dentistry and Dental Spa
Before treatment, Dr. Fedida will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. We conduct this evaluation to decide if the LANAP procedure is the right option for your specific needs. LANAP allows the dentist to remove gum disease without the need for surgery.
First, Dr. Fedida will gently place the dental laser between the gum and teeth to remove diseased tissue inside the pocket. This light kills the germs that cause gum infections. Then, we will remove calculus from the teeth with root cleaners and antibacterial rinses. Next, the dentist will use the dental laser 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.
Is LANAP the right treatment for my gum disease?
Our dentist can successfully use LANAP to treat minor to complex cases of gum disease. Dr. Fedida is always willing to give patients that other dentists turn away a second opinion. LANAP can often restore oral health to edentulous patients who have severely damaged gums. Dr. Fedida will thoroughly analyze the condition of your teeth and gums and determine if LANAP is the ideal treatment for restoring your oral health.
How can I get treatment for gum disease if I have dental anxiety?
LANAP is an ideal treatment option for patients who avoid the dentist due to dental anxiety. Many patients suffer deterioration in their oral health because of their fear of the dentist. LANAP is minimally invasive, suture and needle-free, eliminating many common fears about visiting the dental office. Our dental care team welcomes and caters to the needs of anxious patients. Experience our calm and comfortable dental care services so you can regain control of your oral health.
