Silk Braided Sutures are a highly sought-after product in dentistry, as due to their strength they can be used for any type of surgical procedure. These sutures also have the capability to aid in procedures outside of dentistry such as general surgeries, plastic surgery, ophthalmic surgery, and even gastroenterology or gastrointestinal surgeries.
Silk Braided Sutures represent a special variety of non-absorbable and non-mutagenic surgical sutures. Composed of natural proteinaceous silk fibers known as fibroin, they come with an extra coating of silicone mixture designed to minimize capillarity and heighten surface lubricity. As a result, these braided sutures show improved handling characteristics with effortless passage through tissue, as well as enhanced knot run-down properties. Silk Braided Sutures are composed of 100% natural silk harvested from the larvae of the silkworm. Through a special manufacturing technique, including braiding and coating, these sutures provide extreme suppleness and flexibility that make them optimal for surgical manipulations.
Sutures are of the highest grade in terms of sterility and meet stringent “Grade A” sterilization standards. This process involves radiology techniques, as well as gamma-ray sterilization, which can take up to one month to complete without interruption. All sutures are licensed by CE and ISO and will come packaged with a double layer of sterile protection inside aluminum foil for an added level of security.
Crafted with careful attention to detail, Suture needles are made from a 300-series surgical steel alloy. Meticulously designed to be as slim as possible without comprising strength, their laser-sharpened edges ensure that sutures can be successfully passed through tissue with minimal injury. Crafted with exceptional rigidity to avoid any bending, while ductility minimizes breaking. Incredibly stable in a needle holder and resilient against corrosion.
