Hu-Friedy Perma Sharp™ Sutures provide the precision and performance that dental surgery requires, enabling the best possible outcome, every time. PGA FA loses strength in 14-17 days and is absorbed in 49-63 days.
Designed with a finer point geometry for smoother penetration and precise needle placement. The point is so sharp that lab studies show Perma Sharp Suture needles require up to 20% less force to penetrate tissue. And they feel just as sharp on the last pass as the first.
Unique laser-drilled needles designed to lessen tissue disruption. The needle diameter is actually adjusted according to the size of the suture material that is attached, for a smooth transition from the needle to the suture material resulting in less drag. This means better healing.
Stronger needles manufactured from a proprietary stainless steel alloy result in less breakage. With securely attached suture material, Perma Sharp Suture needles are reliable pass after pass.
Hu-Friedy has made quality and excellence a tradition while supporting dentists and the dental industry for over 100 years.
