A new suture and suturing technique that will help you
Remove tension & mobility of the buccal flap
Did you know?
It takes 4 to 6 weeks to obtain significant reattachment of the periosteum.
The suture must stay in place for a least 4 weeks.
Periosteum reattachment requires a lot of time
When a flap is raised, it becomes mobile interrupting the blood supply causing bone loss. Mobility also creates tension which will be eliminated when reattachment occurs. Most suture materials are removed after 1 to 2 weeks. This is not enough time for the body to achieve suitable reattachment of the periosteum. If the periosteum is not stable, the flap will remain mobile and there will be tissue tension.
The Apical Mattress
• Helps remove tension & mobility of the buccal flap- Decreases soft tissue ischemia- Promotes faster healing & increased soft tissue thickness- Greatly decreases the risk of dehiscence• Faster revascularization of the cortical bone• Faster revascularization of the grafted bone• Prevention of the native bone resorption• Prevention of the bone graft resorption
Monoglyc™: a suture that remains strong, stays plaque free and resorbs
Using a monofilament instead of a braided suture will avoid plaque formation and inflammation.
