Features & Benefits
100% Medical Grade PTFE. Biologically inert.
Monofilament. Doesn’t wick bacteria.
Soft (not stiff like most monofilaments). Comfortable for patients.
Little to no package memory. Excellent handling, knots securely.
Non-resorbable. Keeps the surgical site reliably closed.
Cytoplast™ PTFE suture is an ideal suture for dental bone grafting and implant procedures where a soft monofilament suture is desirable. Cytoplast™ PTFE suture’s monofilament construction doesn’t allow bacterial wicking into the surgical site, and unlike most monofilament sutures, patients like it because it is soft.
USP 2-0 with a 19 mm reverse cutting needle is popular
for procedures where a longer needle is desired.
USP 3-0 with a 19 mm reverse cutting needle combines the most popular
needle in dentistry with our most popular suture size.
USP 3-0 with a 16 mm reverse cutting needle is by far the most popular
size, especially for dental implant and bone grafting procedures.
USP 4-0 with a 16 mm reverse cutting needle is the most popular of the
smaller 4-0 sutures, especially for dental implant and bone grafting procedures.
USP 4-0 with a 13 mm taper point needle is often used on soft tissue grafts
and suturing delicate tissues that require an atraumatic needle.
USP 4-0 with a 13 mm premium reverse cutting needle offers over 50%
longer cutting edges, giving needles a more slender, defined shape that
greatly decreases the force applied to the needle during surgery.
