Oral Bacteria on Suture Materials - Clinical Comparison of an Antibacterial-coated and a Non-coated Suture Material
Antibacterial Triclosan-coated suture material (VICRYL PLUS®, Ethicon) and non-coated (VICRYL®) was compared for bacterial colonization after third molar extraction. Sutures were removed postoperatively and adhered bacteria were investigated.
