Abstract

The goal of suturing in dental surgery is to maintain haemostasis and permit healing by primary intention. Suturing in dental surgery permits proper flap position and helps to prevent underlying bone exposure that may result in delayed healing and unnecessary resorption. Inappropriate suturing, however, adversely hamper the healing process. The aim of this review article was to report sutures and suturing techniques in dental surgery. Sutures and suturing techniques in dental surgery was categorized into suture materials, suture armamentarium, principles of suturing, suturing techniques, removal of sutures and possible suturing complications. Clearer understanding of sutures and suturing techniques in dental surgery will greatly improve the clinical outcome of dental surgical procedures rendered to patients.
