  • Abstract

    In general surgery, the incidence of post-operative surgical site infections (SSIs) is reported to be lower with the use of triclosan-coated sutures. In intraoral surgery, sutures are faced with different bacterial species in the oral cavity, and the question arises whether the antibacterial-coated suture material has the same positive effects. The scope of this article was to review studies that compare the use of triclosan-coated sutures to uncoated sutures in the prevention of SSIs in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
