Tri-Cities Denturist Brightens Community One Smile At A Time
As someone who is in the business of making people smile, Rav Lyall says he could not see himself in any other profession. Helping patients feel confident and comfortable with their smiles, Rav and the rest of the staff at Burke Mountain Denture Clinic know that there is more to dentures than just oral health. “I’m really passionate about what I do, I really care about people’s mouths and their oral health and restoring smiles,” the denturist said.
Originally hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Rav came to the west coast in 2001 and never looked back. He says it is the beautiful nature that surrounds him and the hometown feel that is native to the Tri-Cities that has kept him here. Yet, Rav says it is the people who make up the community that is truly special. “When I first came here to do my practicum, one of the first things I noticed about Port Coquitlam was the community’s sense of welcoming,” he said.
Rav, who has been the primary denturist at Burke Mountain Denture Clinic since 2007, understands that every patient is different. That is why every set of dentures is crafted by hand. “Every mouth is different and every smile is different,” he said. “We make sure we achieve that in our work where we create natural looking dentures and make people confident about their smiles again.” Likewise, a denture can help to fill in gaps that can start to show up in you teeth and restore your confidence and sense of well-being. If you are concerned about the fit of a denture or you desire another option beyond a conventional denture, a great treatment of choice will be dentures over implants.
Helping people with their confidence and their ability to smile was something Rav was always interested in doing. When he learned the extent of just how much craftsmanship goes into being a denturist, he fell in love with his profession. Working with people, educating his patients about denture and dental care, and giving people options are three main tenets that make up his work philosophy.
Denturist Brightens Smiles with Thoughtful Services
At Burke Mountain Denture Clinic, they understand that every person is different and so is their smile. Denturists, who work at the clinic, pay great attention to detail to make sure that the dentures teeth are suited individually. “That is why giving people options – so that they get the right solution to their problem – is very important to us,” said Rav Lyall, the primary denturist at Burke Mountain Denture clinic, located in Port Coquitlam.
“We provide solutions for whether you are missing one natural tooth to all natural teeth,” Lyall said in regards to the variety of services offered at the clinic. If you need to have all your teeth extracted, immediate dentures can be used to help make the denture transition process smoother. Likewise, if gaps start to show up in your teeth or you cannot chew comfortably, dentures on implants– also known for being easier to maintain than traditional dentures – can help restore your smile. From emergency denture repairs and adjustments to partial dentures, Burke Mountain has every denture service you need.
Burke Mountain Clinic, formerly known as Adam’s Clinic, has been serving Tri-Cities for over 35 years. Its services have been designed to meet the patients’ specific, personal needs. By offering several different kinds of denture services, including fixing dentures on implants with the assistance of a dentist or an oral surgeon, and educating the patients on denture care and hygiene, Burke Mountain offers solutions to people of all ages.
Lyall spoke about the craft behind designing dentures, something that many people overlook. “Because every smile is unique, we make every set by hand,” Lyall explained. In fact, the craftsmanship that goes into prosthetic teeth is one of Lyall’s favourite parts of being a denturist as well as helping people in need. The clinic also has an in-house dental laboratory that allows more control during the denture fabrication process.
With complimentary consultations and mobile services to residential care facilities and at-home visitation, the staff at Burke Mountain Denture Clinic truly cares about restoring your smile and confidence.
