Mercury Free Dentistry

BE MERCURY FREE

A European Commission report by the BIO Intelligence Service (BIOS) recommending the phase-out of dental amalgam and mercury.

It’s about time, and hopefully it would push the United States to quickly follow suit. Currently about half of U.S. dentists are mercury-free, and 77 percent of consumers who are informed that amalgam fillings are mostly mercury would choose a mercury-free alternative and are willing to pay a little more for it. 

It’s important to understand that the term “silver filling” is profoundly deceptive, as the composite material contains anywhere from 49 to 54 percent mercury, not silver. The American Dental Association (ADA) has historically covered up this fact, and at one time even declared that removing mercury fillings is unethical -- despite the known fact that dental amalgam emits mercury vapor after it is implanted in your mouth, and this mercury is bioaccumulative and endangers your health in many ways.

At our state of the art clinic here in Lima, Peru, we are specialists in the safe removal and replacement of old amalgam fillings. Dr Enrique Yuen is a biological dentist and he uses durable full porcelain computer made ‘inlays’ as replacements which are far superior to composite materials and have the following benefits:

Preserves healthy tooth structure, because, unlike amalgam, it does not require the removal of significant amounts of healthy tooth matter. Over the long term, porcelain greatly preserves healthy tooth structure and can actually strengthen teeth, leading to better oral health and less extensive dental work in the future.
