Cyanoacrylate in Intraoral Wound Closure
Aim: To study the effect of long chain cyanoacrylate as an adhesive for intraoral wound closure and to explore its haemostatic and effects. Materials and methods: 32 patients from saveetha dental college and hospitals of mean age 35 were selected randomly and split mouth study is done where one side given cyanoacrylate for wound closure and other side conventional sutures for wound closure. Results: Marginal seal/wound seal was acceptable as the incised margins were in close apposition with each other. Inflammation and edema were not present in the maximum number of cases on the 15th postoperative day. Conclusion: Cyanoacrylates can be used as an alternative to sutures for gluing the mucoperiosteum to bone, for example, after impaction removal, periapical surgeries, cleft closure, or biopsy. It can be used as an adjuvant to sutures in many situations to offer wound protection and reduce dehiscence and infection rates, for example, at bone graft sites, for skin grafts or collagen retention, and for mucosal closure at fracture sites. its haemostatic, antimicrobial, and analgesic properties require further evaluation.
