Procedure for open method extraction, initially starts with giving local anaesthesia injection and followed by incisions and flap design. Sutures are defined as stitches or series of stitches made to secure apposition of the edges of a surgical or traumatic wound. It is also defined as any strand or material utilized to ligate blood vessels or approximate tissues. To determine the presences of sutures in open method extraction The purpose of the study was to assess the sutures in open method extraction (post operatively). A study was carried out by collecting data by reviewing patients data and analysing the data of 86000 patients between June 2019 and March 2020 at the private dental institute. The sample size that was taken is 292 patients who came to the private dental institute for consultation. The case sheets of those patients were reviewed for presence or absence of sutures post operative to open method extraction. Data was statistically analysed using SPSS 2.0, Chi-Square Test was conducted. Result was recorded. Majority of the dental students used suturing as the wound closure for post operative open method extraction procedure. Within the limitation of the study, male patients were predominant and suture was present in majority cases of post open method extraction. And the most common site which underwent open method extraction was tooth number 48 and 38 ( lower third molars).

Development of infections along the line of the incision is potentially a dangerous postoperative event. However, some infections that affect the wound margins in certain areas of the body may put the prognosis, in terms of the patient's life, at risk. In less dramatic situations they in case delay healing of tissues involved in transalveolar extraction. The suturing techniques used to reconstruct the planes for primary healing. To evaluate the prevalence of simple interrupted sutures and figure of eight sutures in transalveolar extraction. To analyse the use of simple interrupts and figure of eight sutures. The study was conducted as a hospital based case control study in the area of Thiruverkadu, Chennai. The study was carried out by collecting data by reviewing patients data and analysing the data of 86000 patients between June 2019 and March 2020 at the private dental institute. A total number of 326 case sheets were taken for the study after reviewing from intraoral photographs and additional supports. Photographs were accessed to determine the suturing techniques for patients that underwent open method extraction. Pearson Chi Square Test was evaluated using SPSS. Results were recorded. Simple interrupted suture was commonly used compared to figure of eight suture in transalveolar extraction in the private dental college. Majority of the dental students placed simple interrupted sutures compared to figure of eight sutures postoperative to open method extractions.
