Suturing has a variety of purposes; it helps to quicken the healing process, minimize bleeding, and hold things in place. There are also a number of different categories that sutures fall into, for example, natural, synthetic, resorbable, and non-resorbable. In today’s episode, I’m joined by my brother, Dr. Jake Stucki, for a discussion around the basics of suturing, and some of the suturing techniques that are commonly used by oral surgeons. We go through a number of cases that we have personally dealt with, and explain what informed our decisions around the type of suture we used in each case, as well as some of the mistakes we have made along the way!
