Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a nonabsorbable material of high biocompatibility which for many years has been used for the production of vascular implants, heart valves and membranes for guided bone regeneration. PTFE can also be used for the production of surgical suture.

Clinical images of wounds in the oral cavity sutured with Coreflon immediately after surgery and 7 days later.
After the 7-day period the mucosa does not show signs of inflammation, wounds heal per primam intentionem.
In most cases, after a week of healing, Coreflon stitches can be removed.
