A randomized clinical trial of cyanoacrylate tissue adhesives in donor site of connective tissue grafts
Cyanoacrylate performs similarly to sutures and can be used for wound closure of the donor site of CTG. The application was about 5 minutes faster than conventional suture placement, reducing the total time of the surgical procedure.
I have seen the best results by routinely using PeriAcryl® for socket grafting, with or without immediate implant placement, and as protection over sutures after tension-free primary closure.
Minimizing Patient Morbidity Following Palatal Gingival Harvesting: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Study
The results of this study suggest that the adoption of different hemostatic agents for the protection of the palatal donor site following gingival harvesting procedures may provide better comfort to the patient compared to suturing only. In particular, a DLP of the palatal wound that includes the use of a gelatin sponge and cyanoacrylate might reduce pain and postoperative discomfort. The pain was correlated with graft height and inversely correlated with age.
The Biocompatibility of Cyanoacrylate Tissue Adhesive in Conjunction with a Collagen Membrane for Providing Soft and Hard Tissue Regeneration in Extraction Socket Preservation Procedures
This clinical investigation was performed to determine the efficacy of cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive to enhance soft and hard tissue healing of ex...
Less graft shrinkage in the free gingival graft, together with shorter surgery time and less pain in the recipient site obtained in the cyanoacrylate group, suggest that cyanoacrylate may be considered as an alternative for stabilization of free gingival grafts.
AbstractObjectives: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of a hemostatic collagen sponge and a collagen sponge sealed with a bio-adhes...
Efficacy of Cyanoacrylate (PeriAcryl®90 HV) in its Adhesive Post-Opera@ve Proper@es on Periodontal Wound Healing and Patient Discomfort After Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment:
The changes in CAL and PD as well as the decrease in teeth sensitivity at 6-8 weeks following NSPT, was not found to be statistically significant.
Suturing can have its disadvantages, too, which is why Dr. Scott Froum uses what is known as "superglue for soft tissue" for dental surgery in his practice.
