Omnia Suture PGCL | Exhibitor on the IDS - International Dental Show 2023

Omnia Suture PGCL

Omnia PGCL is an absorbable monofilament suture. Composed of a copolymer of Polyglycolic acid and Polycaprolactone. In periodontal surgery its monofilament characteristics allow for less plaque retention. The progressive loss of tensile strength and suture absorption occurs by hydrolysis, in which the polymer degrades in to adipic acid which is subsequently absorbed and metabolized by the tissues.

Absorption begins as loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. PGCL suture retention is 68-78% of the initial tensile strength after the first week and about 30% after the end of the second week. Suture absorption is essentially complete after a period of 90-110 days. Its original tensile strength is up to 14 days and runs out after 28 days.
