Abstract

Aim: The purpose of the present research was to assess the preference of various suture materials amongst many oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

Methodology: Descriptive study was conducted among 200 oral surgeons. A survey was designed and distributed with questions intending to answer the preference of various type of suture materials amongst participants. The collected results were averaged (mean ± standard deviation) for all parameters.

Results: 136 participants completed the survey. Mostly oral surgeons (89.4%) preferred 3 most commonly used absorbable suture materials (catgut, Dexon and Vicryl rapide).  Vicryl sutures gave more tensile strength in oral wound healing according to 65.3% of participants.

Conclusion: Most oral surgeons preferred usage of absorbable sutures over non-absorbable ones which provides more patient compliance, less wound dehiscence.
