Laser Periodontal Associates of New York
Dr. Neal Lehrman presented to the Facial Plastic Surgery Society of NY on the treatment of pigmented facial lesions with the utilization of a specific Nd:YAG laser. The basics of wavelength absorption and biostimulation were discussed in the treatment of facial scar amelioration, herpetic lesions and gingival depigmentation via the ReGenalight™ protocol. Both basic science and case studies were reviewed.
Dr. Neal Lehrman presented to the Scarsdale Dental Society on the use of targeted laser energy in the treatment of periodontal, peri-implant and corollary oral conditions. The discussion was based on both the scientific background of this unique approach as well as review of clinical case studies. Utilizing a targeted delivery of a specific laser energy, Dr. Lehrman described for the attendees a new approach to the removal of unwanted tissues without compromising the underlying healthy periodontal attachment.
The Nightlase Treatment
Correct your unwanted snoring in usually 3 visits! 3 weeks apart, for approximately 30 minutes. Dr. Lehrman has been a Laser Surgeon for more than a decade and has pioneered many innovative approaches to patient care.
Nightlase™ is a fast, non-invasive, technique using Fotona Laser’s LightWalker ATS Laser to increase the quality of a person’s sleep. This twin laser with a specially designed hand piece warms, conditions, strengthens, tightens, and shrinks the parapharyngeal tissues causing snoring and sleep apnea problems. There is NO PAIN, NO SCALPELS, NO SUTURES, NO SCARRING of palatal tissues as in other techniques. Call us today for a consultation.
Utilizing the same approach that Dr Lehrman has perfected in laser assisted gingival ( gum ) depigmentation, Dr Lehrman is pleased to announce that he is now offering lip depigmentation as an option for those patients that have dark or unevenly pigmented lips. The procedure is usually done in 1 visit with little to no post-operative discomfort as the laser removes the pigment and helps in advancing the healing without any inflammation.
Please contact the office today to see how we can help you achieve your goals.
Dr. Lehrman delivered a lecture to the Department of Dental Oncology at MSKCC in NYC. The discussion focused on an innovative approach to the treatment of ONJ and ORN utilizing a specific FDA cleared protocol and Nd:YAG laser. Patients can now have options to treat this devastating disease other than radical resective surgery. As research continues, we are expanding our approach to management of this unfortunate but expected outcome of many anti-cancer drug regimens.
Osteonecrosis of the Jaw(ONJ) and Osteo-Radionecrosis(ORN), respectively, are two conditions that have been shown to be very destructive to patients who have successfully been treated for many life-threatening diseases. Everyday procedures such as extractions and treatment for periodontal (gum) diseases can become devastating to the patient because of the inability to clot normally to allow for regeneration of healthy tissues.
Using a novel approach utilizing a specific Nd:YAG laser with an FDA cleared protocol to create both a stable clot to allow for better healing, coupled with bio-stimulation of the areas affected to increase oxygenation of the tissue on a cellular level, Dr. Neal Lehrman DDS has been successfully treating these conditions in his NYC offices.
Dr. Lehrman’s seminar at the 64th American Academy of Implant Dentistry in Las Vegas, NV will focus on the issue that is now becoming an epidemic amongst the dental implant community. As communities age out, many well placed dental implants succumb to both peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis. The need for a comprehensive approach to combat this ever growing problem is discussed form both a scientific bent with an eye to offering reproducible treatment strategies.
Dr. Neal Lehrman, Clinical Asst. Professor in the Dept. of Periodontics at Rutgers SDM, is pleased to announce the creation of a LANAP program to treat patients within the dental school/ hospital setting. In conjunction with MDT and the IALD, Rutgers SDM and the dept. of post graduate periodontics has dedicated facilities to house a Periolase MVP-7 laser, which will allow for formal training of faculty and students alike to perform this modality of therapy, both within the confines of the school and once they complete their studies.
Dr. Lehrman is one of a handful of certified instructors form the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry , which is the research arm aimed at studying and disseminating information about LANAP, LAPIP and its corollary procedures. He is the first periodontist to perform these procedures in NY/NJ and as well is the first instructor to be certified as a periodontist in the NY/NJ/CT metropolitan area.

Jacob Javits Center, NY NY
Dr. Lehrman reviewed the current climate in which we as clinicians are confronted not only with failing but also ailing dental implants. A thorough review of the science behind the remarkable LAPIP ™ procedure was explained . Clinical cases were discussed and special attention was paid the idea that soft tissue healing holds as much information for the overall success of dental implants then to counterpart, peri-implant bone. By discussing a procedure which allows for targeted removal of diseased tissue, Dr. Lehrman showed the attendees a viable approach to this fast growing dental implant epidemic, albeit one that caries with it low morbidity and excellent chances for regeneration.
We are pleased to announce the opening of our Lower Manhattan Office in Tribeca located at:
23 Warren Street #10
New York NY 10007
Dr. Lehrman will be the first periodontist in Lower Manhattan serving Tribeca, Greenwich Village, SOHO and the Wall Street neighborhoods. Offering not only comprehensive periodontal and dental implant services, but LANAP laser gum surgery as well.
