Introduction: An alternative to interrupted sutures for implant surgery at sites of edentulous ridges is the continuous locking suture, however it tends to loosen and time-consuming as the result.
Methods and Materials: The modified continuous double locking suture is a modification of continuous locking suture, which is designed to approximate flap margins of an edentulous area.
Results: Application of modified continuous double locking suture, reduces the chance of suture loosening by adding an extra knot at each area.
Conclusion: By utilizing modified continuous double locking suture, it is easier to manipulate flap margins; nonetheless, more studies are needed to evaluate its efficacy in dental practice.
