Dental sutures are used for securing soft tissue after surgery. They assist in wound healing after dental procedures such as extractions, incisions of the gums, surgery to remove cysts, bone grafts and biopsies. Dental sutures help in maintaining closure of surgical incisions and wounds by pulling edges of open soft tissues and wounds together. They also facilitate wound healing by regulating wound drainage and keeping wound edges in close apposition. There are various types of dental sutures available such as absorbable and non-absorbable sutures
Market key trends:
The key factor driving the dental suture market is the increased number of dental surgeries globally. According to the American Dental Association, approximately 33 million people undergo gum treatment each year in the United States. The global rise in prevalence of dental diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis and dental caries has increased demand for various dental procedures which involves use of sutures for healing and tissue regeneration. Technological advancements in dental sutures resulting in introduction of improved sutures with better tissue absorption properties is also boosting demand.
