HU-FRIEDY PERMA SHARP™ SUTURES

The suture designed for dentists

HIGH PERFORMANCE. PRECISE RESULTS

Hu-Friedy Perma Sharp™ Sutures are designed specifically for dental, ensuring efficient and reliable soft tissue closure and they are manufactured from a stronger alloy composition, which increases ductile strength. This means that if the needle does bend, it is less likely to break when reshaping. Moreover, the 300 Series Stainless Steel, the ideal alloy for dental suture needles, ensures a strong sharp needle pass after pass.

Other very important points of performance are related both to a finer point geometry for smooth tissue penetration, requiring up to 20% less force than other suture needles, and to the laser-drilled needles which reduce tissue disruption.

ABSORBABLE MATERIALS

PGA (DYED AND UNDYED)
This braided homopolymer of glycolic acid has good tensile strength and handling properties. Strength retention 17-21 days. PGA loses strength in 14-17 days and is absorbed in 90-120 days.

PGA FA (FAST ABSORPTION)
Developed for short-term closures, PGA FA is ideal for skin and mucosa closing that may benefit from fast suture absorption. PGA FA retains approximately 48% of its original tensile strength one-week post implantation and 0% by approximately 14-17 days. Absorption of PGA FA is essentially complete between 49-63 days. It is processed to absorb quickly with little tissue reaction.

NON-ABSORBABLE MATERIALS

SILK
Being the ”classic” non-absorbable suture, braided silk has superior handling properties and visibility.

POLYESTER
Polyester sutures are made from polyethylene trephthalate polymers. Excellent tensile strength and less tissue reaction than braided silk.

POLYPROPYLENE
Monofilament material made from polypropylene polymers has excellent tissue compatibility. A good alternative to silk.

PTFE
PTFE Sutures are non-absorbable, synthetic and monofilament sutures which handle smoothly like a multifilament. They are white in color, so nice if used in aesthetic zones. Comfortable for the patient, they promotes wound healing because unlike multifilament sutures, they do not absorb blood, saliva, bacteria or food residues.
