Dental surgery : Sutures

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.
