    Background: Suturing is a crucial part of any oral surgical procedure. Sutures are of two types – absorbable and nonabsorbable. The main aim of the present study is to perform a knowledge, attitude, and practice of dental students based on the choice of suture material and the technique for the management of surgical wounds. Aim: The objective of the study was to perform a knowledge, attitude, and practice of dental students based on the choice of suture material and the technique for the management of surgical wounds. Materials and Methods: A sample size of 100 dental practitioners who perform surgical procedures was considered as participants. A questionnaire comprises 10 questions on the incidence, technique, and management of suture materials and surgical wounds. The subjects were made to fill the questionnaire through an online portal. The recordings were made individually by the investigator and results were analyzed. All the data were arranged in a tabulated form and analyzed using SPSS software. Results: The results inferred from the study show that 74% of dental practitioners opted for resorbable sutures and 29% have experienced complications post-treatment such as stitch abscess. 44% of the participants feel they are aware of the resorption time of sutures. Conclusion: From the study, we can conclude that there is sufficient knowledge among the dental practitioners regarding the suturing technique and type of sutures for the management of surgical wounds.
