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).

Suture materials play a very important role in healing and enabling reconstruction and reassembly of tissue separated by the surgical procedure or trauma. Suture materials are used daily in oral surgery, and are considered to be substances most commonly implanted in the human body. Silk has been used as biomedical suture material for centuries and it provides important clinical repair options for many applications but the disadvantage is the biocompatibility problems .In the present day, Vicryl suture material is the most commonly used material in oral surgery, as it proves to be more biocompatible and plaque accumulation is reduced . Evaluation of 685 patients undergoing third molar extractions and evaluate the type of suture material given and compare between the different suture materials and their efficacy . Excel tabulation was done and SPSS results were derived .The study was able to evaluate and notice that Silk suture material was the most commonly given suture material and based it was also seen that the plaque accumulation was more in patients given silk sutures while Vicryl sutures was used the most post extraction of 18,28.From the present study we were able to conclude that Silk was the commonly used suture Material and the incidence of surgical site infection were greater in these patients . Of the 63 patients that were given Vicryl Sutures , there was no Surgical Site Infection (SSI) observed in any of the patients , this is attributed to the Antibacterial properties of Vicryl sutures that helps in avoiding surgical site infections ,

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.

The aim of this study is to determine the understanding regarding resorbable suture material  and its role in dentistry among dental students. To create awareness and determine the understanding of resorbable suture material and its role in dentistry among dental students. This study was conducted based on a questionnaire which consisted of 10 questions through a web-linked application called Survey Monkey. A convenient sample size of 100 consecutive dental students who are currently practicing in Chennai participated in the study.  As an overall result, most of the participants are aware of resorbable suture material and their role in dentistry. As a conclusion, the awareness on resorbable suture material also its role and development among dental students in Chennai is adequate but certain knowledge has to be brushed up among them for a higher level. Furthermore, they need to be trained on these grounds to help them treat their patients with more consent and awareness.
