5-0 Blue Polypropylene Suture 18", D-14 Needle 17.5 mm, 1/2 Circle Cutting End Taper
- Designed with a finer point geometry for smoother penetration and precise needle placement. The point is so sharp that lab studies show Perma Sharp Suture needles require up to 20% less force to penetrate tissue. And they feel just as sharp on the last pass as the first.
- Unique laser-drilled needles designed to lessen tissue disruption. The needle diameter is actually adjusted according to the size of the suture material that is attached, for a smooth transition from the needle to the suture material resulting in less drag. This means better healing.
- Stronger needles manufactured from a proprietary stainless steel alloy result in less breakage. With securely attached suture material, Perma Sharp Suture needles are reliable pass after pass.
- Hu-Friedy has made quality and excellence a tradition while supporting dentists and the dental industry for over 100 years.

I prefer Hu-Friedy 6-0 polypropylene suture with a C-17 needle for my soft tissue grafting procedures as well as for flap closure due to the precision of the needle size and sharpness. This needle has sufficient length to easily pass under the papillae and through embrasure spaces. The needle’s small diameter, smaller than needles on other 6-0 suture products, penetrates tissue more easily and with less damage to the delicate tissue. The monofilament suture is hydrophobic, repels contamination and leaves no marks or creases on tissue margins. It is particularly indicated for microsurgical procedures.Dr. Edward P. Allen
Hu-Friedy sutures are the ideal suture for effective and efficient wound closure. The sharp, stainless steel needle allows for smoother suturing, optimizing the overall healing process and patient comfort. I use Hu-Friedy sutures because they are unlike any suture in the industry when it comes to high quality and extreme precision. I also believe in only supporting manufacturers that support organized dentistry, and Hu-Friedy is dentistry’s best supporter.Dr. Lee Silverstein
I can always count on Hu-Friedy sutures to be of the highest quality and value. Regardless of the suture material used (chromic gut, PGA or silk), I can count on both the quality of the needle and suture material. Packaging and labeling are also user friendly since the operating theater requires simplicity and accuracy. Once again, my appreciation to Hu-Friedy.Dr. Jon Suzuki
