In the dentistry field, suture selection is dependent on the anatomic site, surgeon’s preference, and the required suture characteristics.
No standardised sizing system is available for needles or needle holders; the main consideration in material and needle selection is to minimise trauma.
HYGITECH answers the needs of surgeons and offers 3 different types of sutures :
• Taper cutting : needle body is round and tapers smoothly to a point
• Conventional cutting : needle body is triangular and has a sharpened cutting edge on the inside
• Reverse cutting : cutting edge on the outside
All sutures are sterile and have a 3 year shelf life from the manufacturing date.
