Non-absorbable undyed monofilament suture made of polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) polymer

The PTFE suture for happy smiles

Elasyn® is recommended for any periodontal, bone graft or implant surgery, where a soft and biologically inert suture material is required.

The PTFE material offers a wide range of properties, which make this suture the election of choice in dental surgery:

  • Completely non-absorbable
  • Reduced bacterial adhesion in comparison to standard braided sutures [1], [2]
  • Due to its softness, it improves the intraoperative handling and the patient comfort [3]

Elasyn® is available in different USP (from 3/0 to 6/0) and stainless needle combinations.
