Absorbable Sutures for Demanding Surgical Applications
Unify 4 0 gut sutures and 3 0 gut sutures are designed for precision tissue approximation during implantation, restorative work, and other dental surgeries.
Surgical gut is developed from highly purified collagen, which results in a high level of tensile strength with predictable degradation. Tensile strength in plain gut sutures can be maintained for up to 10 days, before the body begins the absorption cycle, which is usually complete within 70 days. Plain gut has a slightly faster degradation time when compared to gut treated with chromic salt. Unify® plain gut sutures are ideal for treatments where swift recovery is expected.
The advantages for both patients and practitioners are significant. With 4 0 gut sutures and 3 0 gut sutures, follow-up consultations are minimized. There’s no interaction required by the patient, with sutures absorbing naturally. The high tensile strength helps to ensure that surgical sites are kept clean during the healing process. Reliable sutures from Unify® can potentially reduce dental procedure costs while increasing the productivity of any practice or specialist surgical department.
Gut sutures are ideal for suturing subcutaneous tissue and ligating superficial blood vessels.
Chromic Gut vs Plain Gut Sutures for Dental Procedures
Treated chromic gut and plain gut surgical sutures are comparable in tensile strength and handling. There are some key differences in resorption and tissue irritation.
- Chromic gut has an advantage with a delayed resorption profile. This can sometimes be as much as four full days when compared to plain gut. If minimal recovery and healing are anticipated, plain gut will provide the fastest possible resorption profile.
- The tensile strength is comparable between the two materials. The degradation pattern is linear, offering a high amount of strength right up until degradation occurs around the tenth day following a procedure.
- Plain gut surgical sutures are more biocompatible with oral soft tissues when compared to chromic gut. This may improve results in patients with heightened sensitivity. In the majority of cases, biocompatibility between plain and chromic gut is similar.
- Plain gut sutures are non-pliable when removed from sterile packaging. Sutures are shipped in an isopropyl alcohol solution to stabilize and protect the material from contamination. Sutures should be rehydrated in sterile water before application. The material will become pliable within five minutes. Handling is comparable to silk, allowing for precision suturing and minimal trauma.
Faster resorption, moderate to high tensile strength, lower likelihood of irritation, and less tissue reaction are the key reasons why dental professionals choose Unify® plain gut surgical sutures.
