Objective:To compare the different amount of bacterial colonies adhered on silk and catgut sutures in odontectomy patient at Dr. Pirngadi Hospital from May to July 2018.

Material and Methods:This is laboratory experimental study with a “post-test only control group†design which means the threads that have been remove on 7th day postoperative and would be transferred to Microbiology Laboratory, Faculty of Mathematic and Science, Universitas Sumatera Utara . Bacterial colony counter were used to count the amount of bacteria colony on a petri dish containing PCA medium after the colonization was diluted to 10-7 mL. The number of patients studied were 26 people, therefore 13 people used silk sutures and 13 people used catgut sutures.

Results:The results were statistically analyzed using Mann-Whitney Test. There was no significant difference (p> 0.05) between the amount of bacterial colonies adherence on silk and catgut sutures. The mean bacterial colony on silk sutures are 207.38±173.605 x107 CFU/mL, meanwhile on catgut sutures are 115.15±158.905 x107 CFU/mL.

Conclusion:Catgut suture could minimalize bacterial colonization better than silk suture.
