PeriAcryl®90 is a cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive that has become a popular product in oral surgery. This dental adhesive is designed to perform specifically in the oral cavity. PeriAcryl®90 is an ideal blend of n-butyl cyanoacrylate and 2-octyl cyanoacrylate that give the formulation the perfect set of properties to function on soft oral tissue. PeriAcryl®90 is intended to attach dental dressings such as COE-PAK™ to intact gum tissue and/or tooth enamel to help keep dressings secure and in place for up to two weeks.
PeriAcryl®90 was developed by GluStitch nearly 20 years ago. At the time, periodontists were purchasing hospital format cyanoacrylate adhesive products (eg. HistoAcryl®, HistoAcryl® Blue) that were designed for single-use wound closure situations in an emergency room setting. The formulations and packaging were not tailored to the needs of the dental industry. Using feedback from periodontists across North America, the ideal formulation was developed by combining two cyanoacrylate monomers; n-butyl and 2-octyl. Over the years, PeriAcryl®90 has grown in popularity throughout the dental community. After the discontinuation of the only other dental cyanoacrylate adhesive (Isodent® by Ellman International) demand for the superior PeriAcryl®90 formulation increased dramatically and now it is the top selling dental cyanoacrylate adhesive in North America.
In the summer of 2011, GluStitch introduced PeriAcryl®90 High Viscosity, a thicker formulation to provide more control during application. This new product is 9 times thicker than the original PeriAcryl®90 formulation and has the same strength and durability characteristics that oral surgeons have come to rely on. Both PeriAcryl®90 and PeriAcryl®90 High Viscosity are now available for sale in Europe, and around the world.
Below is a table that shows the PeriAcryl®90 product offering that is manufactured by GluStitch Inc.

The Er,Cr:YSGG laser has indications for use in cutting bone, enamel, dentin, and soft tissue. In a study using rabbits, the reported advantage for this laser use with soft tissues is a reduction in bleeding.1 A recent clinical study with implant patients discussed further soft tissue benefits from laser surgery of less postoperative pain and swelling.2 In studies using animal tissue,
N-butyl cyanoacrylate is an effective tissue adhesive which is hemostatic and bacteriostatic. It can be considered an alternative to conventional sutures in soft-tissue surgery. The author presents two cases demonstrating the use of the material. Case One shows its use in free gingival graft surgery. Case Two shows its use post-biopsy. Extensive research is available from...
