Orthodontics is a dental specialty which aims to prevent, diagnose and treat facial and dental irregularities, such as bad bites due to over-crowding, overbite, underbite or improperly positioned teeth.
Braces apply a gentle, constant pressure to your teeth to encourage them to move little by little and bring them into alignment, making an enormous difference to the overall look of your smile and bite.
Teeth straightening used to take 2 years to complete, but here at our clinic in Lima, Peru we can offer alternatives for orthodontics and teeth alignment. Simple teeth straightening can be completed in just a few short months using modern techniques.
For more challenging cases, several months with braces may be necessary. Meanwhile, invisible braces that blend with the natural look of your smile the patient must be aware that these can take some additional time.
Invisalign, A Clear Alternative – Invisible & Comfortable!
Because Invisalign uses comfortable plastic aligners to move teeth, you can continue enjoying your active lifestyle even during treatment and because Invisalign is nearly invisible, most people won’t know you are straightening your teeth unless you tell them.
During your initial visit to Dr Yuen, you will be able to decide on the treatment course that suits you best. We will take bite impressions of your teeth and send them to Invisalign for processing.
Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to transform your bite impressions in to a series of custom made, clear and removable aligners. You will receive your first set of aligners in just a few weeks.
Each Invisalign aligner will be worn day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. A typical patient should expect to complete treatment in roughly 1 year.
Congratulations! Your treatment is complete when you have finished wearing each aligner in the series and you will have beautiful, aligned teeth just how you always wanted them.
We offer alternative braces for teeth straightening and our specialist orthodontist will decide which system is best for you during a consultation and diagnosis.
Mercury free holistic
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 holistic dentist, using durable full porcelain computer made ‘inlays’ as replacements for amalgams which are far superior to composite materials.
Ceramic inlays preserve 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 strengthens teeth, leading to better oral health and less extensive dental work in the future.
