Dr. Lederman’s continuing education has included recent trends in dentistry that is minimally invasive or “light touch dentistry.”   In his study under Simone Deliperi, an internationally recognized authority on minimally invasive dentistry, Dr. Lederman has adopted an approach where the more a tooth is structurally compromised, the more gently he treats it.

Such a minimally invasive approach to dentistry uses techniques and materials to treat dental restorations to sustain as much as the natural tooth as possible. Not only is it better for the tooth and patient’s long-term health, patients have a much better experience with minimally-invasive dentistry.

Dr. Lederman employs several minimally-invasive approaches to improve both the outcome and patient experience. In cases where Dr. Lederman can use air abrasion to treat tooth decay, patients avoid drilling to treat cavities. When Dr. Lederman can use The Wand, a computerized method of delivering anesthesia, patients avoid painful injections prior to treatment. When Dr. Lederman is able to use a biomimetic approach to dentistry, the techniques mean less drilling for the patient in treating cavities.
Minimally invasive approaches to dentistry have revolutionized dentistry. By using these progressive techniques that reduce the invasiveness. Dr. Lederman improves the long-term prognosis for teeth requiring dental care. Patients don’t mind at all, either, with less drilling and fewer injections when filling or restorations are needed.
