Sutures are medical devices used in surgery. They serve as tissues stabilizers in contact with or near to the surgical site without compromising the healing process. They must keep their physical properties for the necessary time, in particular tensile strength. In view of the wide variety of references offered by all specialtys combined, which supply sutures with all materials described, whose use is indicated for all surgical procedures. The objective of this work is to evaluate the tensile strength of absorbable and non-absorbable sutures for a period of 10 to 28 days under conditions simulated by the oral route. 5 sutures materials were tested with a metric diameter of 1.5 and 4.The tensile strength test was used according to the protocol of the European Pharmacopoeia (Eur.Ph.9.5). 5 fragments of each material were measured before and after their immersion in Artificial Saliva (AS). In AS, the Polypropylene suture significantly maintained (p = 5%) its tensile strength compared to that of Polyamide. For absorbable sutures, a loss of more than 70% of their initial strength was marked on the 7th day of immersion. In view of the results obtained, during oral surgical operations, the material of choice is in favor of Propylene.
