Did you know that Portmore is BTI accredited dental implant centre?
The Spanish based BTI Biotechnology Institute design & manufacture dental implants and surgical instruments, they are also key players in regenerative medicine. BTI supply dental surgeons throughout the world and are renowned for innovation, education and a strong commitment to quality. 

Johann has been working with the team at BTI for many years and firmly believes in their ethos, having  achieved wonderful results with his own patients here at Portmore using BTI dental implants. This relationship saw Johann become a Key Opinion Leader for BTI, which enables him to stay at the forefront of this exciting technology, working alongside other key opinion leaders and the BTI team in order to continually provide cutting edge implant treatment to all of our patients.

Johann’s involvement with BTI currently extends to delivering ‘hands-on’ workshops for local general dental practitioners in and around Surrey. GDP’s may wish to grow implant dentistry in their own practice or request mentoring & assistance with more complex cases. Future plans include the development of a training hub, with regular seminars, lectures and workshops for the whole dental team.
Implant dentistry at Portmore has never been so exciting!

Spotlight on…
...PRGF Organic Facial Rejuvenation. PRGF stands for “Plasma Rich in Growth Factors” and is a breakthrough treatment in the field of healing that can be applied to dentistry and facial cosmetics. PRGF in dentistry is used to greatly accelerate the healing process, leaving patients comfortable much more quickly following a surgical procedure.  Here at Portmore our clinicians also use PRGF technology for facial skin rejuvenation.
How Does it Work?
PRGF works by taking a small amount of blood from the patient before treatment begins. This sample is then placed in a centrifuge-spinning device, which isolates specific proteins from the sample. These proteins are used by our bodies naturally as a part of the healing process from injury, and help tissue to regenerate and wounds to repair. With this technique we are able to isolate, concentrate and extract growth factors, a set of proteins present in your blood that are responsible for repair tissue naturally. Plasma rich in growth factors enables our own proteins to rejuvenate our skin, making for a healthier appearance.

The Treatment process takes about 2 hours, but the application process itself takes around 30 mins and is very straight forward.

The benefits of PRGF®-Endoret® skin rejuvenation are:
Production of own Hyaluronic acid – It stimulates the natural production of hyaluronic acid by our cells themselves avoiding treatments with hyaluronic acid with bacterial or animal origin.

Increased consistency – The PRGF®-Endoret® promotes the increase secretion of collagen and elastin. This generates a greater consistency, firmness and reduced sagging in the skin of the patient.

Hydration – PRGF®-Endoret® ensures a high level of skin hydration compared to levels obtained with other cosmetic treatments as it has been proven in clinical trials.

Wrinkle reduction – The filler effect got through the use of PRGF®- Endoret® technology attenuates the wrinkles in the infiltrated areas. The facial expression lines lose their depth similar to the way they do on the treatments with hyaluronic acid.

Skin luminosity – PRGF®-Endoret® makes skin recover the lost luminosity over the years. Patients that have gone through this innovative treatment achieve a higher lustre of their skin.

The effects of PRGF® are progressive and begin to be evident after 24 hours from the first application, with an increase of the smoothness and brightness of the skin with each new session. It is recommended to receive three sessions in the first three months. Subsequently, the treatment is personalised, being usual maintenance sessions one to three per year depending on age and skin type.
