Save up to 80% compared to other polypropylene suture brands and have confidence knowing that quality and consistency are uncompromised.

Advantages and Surgical Applications of Unify® Polypropylene Sutures

Polypro sutures are ideal in surgical applications where maximum tensile strength and durability are key requirements.

Made from a non-absorbable synthetic monofilament, polypropylene surgical sutures can last the lifetime of recovery. Dental procedures expected to heal within a matter of weeks or months are ideal for these 100% medical-grade sutures from Unify®. Tensile strength is uncompromised throughout the lifetime of the suture, ensuring that surgical sites remain closed for as long as is necessary.

As non-absorbable sutures, polypro sutures cause minimal tissue reaction. The surface is smooth and creates only minor trauma when traveling through tissue. The smooth penetration and threading are aided by ultra-sharp Unify® needle points that have been coated with a microscopic layer of silicone. Sutures are bound to needles with a drill end press fit, ensuring a durable connection that remains intact throughout the stitching process.

Polypropylene sutures are typically colored blue and are sometimes referred to simply as blue sutures in the medical community. Blue improves visibility while suturing and is also used as a quick reference for the suture type during removal. This can be helpful when a patient passes through several dental professionals from the initial procedure, right through to full recovery.

Surgical applications for blue sutures include:

  • Multiple tooth extractions with large incisions.
  • Wisdom tooth removal.
  • Dental implant surgery.
  • Bone grafting surgery.

For a durable and 100% medical-grade polypropylene suture, insist on affordable Unify® sutures.

Technical Properties of Unify® Polypro Sutures

Polypropylene sutures are formed with an inert thermoplastic material that maintains its structure when exposed to base fluids, acids, and solvents. Polypropylene can degrade when exposed to ultraviolet light, which is atypical when used in a dental procedure context.

Sutures must be stored in a dark and cool storage space to preserve tensile strength and durability. Unify® sutures are expertly packed to prevent damage in transit and while in storage. Our sutures exceed all requirements and standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the United States Pharmacopeial Convention.

Polypropylene monofilament has anti-inflammatory properties to inhibit trauma and discomfort around the surgical site. Following suturing, the thread can expand by up to 30%. This offers two significant benefits to patients and dental surgeons. Primarily, expansion prevents tissue damage if the suture tightens after it has been placed. The expansion also promotes blood flow, which can help to support the surgical site with rapid healing time.

Due to the non-degradable properties, Unify® polypro sutures can be encapsulated by tissue if left over an extended period of time. In some cases, the suture can remain intact indefinitely if there is no risk of tissue irritation. Surgeons should consider the length of healing along with the long-life duration of blue sutures. Dissolvable sutures may be preferred if the healing duration is expected over a matter of days, as they require minimal aftercare and, in some cases, a follow-up visit can be avoided altogether.

Keep the Advantages of Blue Sutures in Mind

Polypropylene sutures are often referred to as blue sutures, because of the color of the material. Clinicians trust blue sutures for their reliability and technical performance. When looking at polypropylene sutures, there are a few key benefits to keep in mind that can help when deciding what to buy.

  • Ease of use – Blue sutures are known for their ease of use, thanks to the smooth and thin thread that easily passes through tissue with the included ultra-sharp needle point. Ease of use is important when considering sutures or other dental products. When a product simply works as it is intended to, it can simplify the entire chairside process, reducing stress for the clinician and improving the overall experience for the patient.
  • Excellent tensile strength – Polypropylene sutures are also known for retaining their tensile strength. This is one of the most important considerations when choosing sutures. Maintaining tensile strength means that the patient’s recovery timeline will be consistent and predictable. It can also help when suturing larger wounds that are at risk of reopening. High tensile strength keeps the repair stable so that new tissue can form to create a permanent repair. Tensile strength is a typical advantage of non resorbable sutures and blue sutures are no exception.
  • Visibility – One benefit that is sometimes overlooked is the enhanced visibility when using blue sutures. The color of the suture makes it stand out against tissue so that clinicians can clearly see the surgical field. This can make suturing a simpler and safer process, with cleaner repairs and a smoother chairside workflow. The color also aids when removing sutures. The sutures can be easily seen, ensuring that all of the thread is removed, preventing the risk of any material being left in the tissue.
  • Wide Availability – There’s a wide availability of sizes for blue sutures. Unify® polypropylene sutures come in 6-0, 5-0, 4-0, and 3-0 variants. This means that there’s a perfect suture available for a range of applications including tooth extractions with significant incisions, wisdom tooth removal, dental implant surgery, and bone grafting surgery. Dental Implant Technologies stocks polypropylene sutures in all of these sizes, and they’re available for order today. We deliver to practices throughout the United States.
  • Handling – Polypropylene sutures are soft yet strong, which enhances overall handling. The sutures can be easily manipulated so that even threading in an area with restricted movement using small instruments will be straightforward for experienced clinicians.
