MONOGLYC™ Absorbable Dyed Monofilament suture
Box of 24 sutures
A suture that remains strong, stays plaque free and resorbs over 4 weeks.
The smooth monofilament surface structures of the Monoglyc™ polymer result in excellent handling and tissue passage properties. Tissue trauma from suturing is virtually non existent with Monoglyc™, and the monofilament structure prevents bacterial wicking. Monoglyc™’s high quality needle easily allows for atraumatic passage through tissue.
Braided sutures often cause plaque formation and inflammation.
Avoid these complications with Monoglyc™ absorbable monofilament sutures.

IMPORTANT! Monofilament must be cut long : minimum 8 mm
Shorter monofilament threads will stiffen and may cause pain.

The Apical Mattress Technique
The Apical Mattress Suturing Technique
Ideal suturing technique that will help you
Remove tension & mobility of the buccal flap
It takes 4 to 6 weeks to obtain significant reattachment of the periosteum.
The suture must stay in place for at least 4 weeks. Monglyc is the ideal absorbable suture for this technique.

Periosteum reattachment requires a lot of time
When a flap is raised, it becomes mobile interrupting the blood supply causing bone loss. Mobility also creates tension which will be eliminated when reattachment occurs. Most suture materials are removed after 1 to 2 weeks. This is not enough time for the body to achieve suitable reattachment of the periosteum. If the periosteum is not stable, the flap will remain mobile and there will be tissue tension.
