The Advantages of Chromic Gut Sutures
4 0 chromic gut surgical sutures are used widely in the dental care industry for oral and periodontal surgeries. This material comes with significant advantages that benefit dental surgeons and their patients.
Chromic gut is made from organic material harvested from the connective tissue of bovine and bovine intestines. Serosal tissue strands are selected in a rigorous process to ensure consistency, tensile strength, and suitability for surgical applications.
Organic chromic gut sutures are cleaned and treated in the production process and are packaged in a medical solution to preserve their integrity and sterility. Threads are treated with chromic salt to improve durability over plain gut sutures.
The advantages of chromic gut sutures are varied and significant.
Tensile strength is moderate to high and is maintained for up to 14 days following surgery. This ensures that surgical sites have adequate healing and recovery time. As absorbable sutures, it’s possible to minimize the requirements for aftercare and follow-up procedures. This can preserve the resources of the practitioner while also ensuring that the recovery process is smooth and stress-free for the patient.
Tissue reaction is mild and is comparable to plain gut and silk sutures. The risk of infection is low, and the healing process is benefitted by low bioreactivity. Handling is excellent, which allows for precision application and secure stitching. Shape memory is low, allowing for low-profile packaging that saves inventory space. Knot safety is excellent and is comparable to polypropylene, PDO, and plain gut sutures. Knot safety exceeds some sutures, including silk and nylon monofilament and braided sutures.
4 0 chromic gut sutures lack any sawing effect, so they are easy to apply and tissue damage/agitation is virtually nonexistent. Tissue trauma from sutures has been minimized in the dental industry, thanks to innovative products from Unify® and similar brands.
Dental surgeons will benefit from all these advantages when choosing our surgical sutures.

Typical Surgical Use Cases of 4 0 Chromic Gut Sutures by Unify®
Unify® chromic gut surgical sutures are most suitable for dental procedures that require approximation or ligation of soft tissue.
Chromic gut is often used for tooth extractions where it’s necessary to develop a gum tissue flap to access bone or an impacted tooth. Professionals prefer the predictable strength-duration, which typically ranges from 10 to 14 days. In some cases, a moderate level of tensile strength could be maintained for up to 21 days.
Soft tissue suturing may be necessary after implantation or following surgery for injuries in the oral cavity. Chromic gut is often preferred over standard gut sutures.
Our Unify® 4-0 chromic gut sutures (and other sizes including 3 0 chromic gut sutures) can be considered for oral surgeries that require suturing with moderate strength for up to two weeks.
