If the product appears dry following hydration and no connected mass has formed, additional saline solution can be added dropwise and mixed with the product until the desired texture is obtained. On the other hand, insufficient or excessive amount of liquid can result in a failure to form the described texture or a loss thereof. Likewise, excessive liquid at the augmentation site, i.e. in case of profuse bleeding in sinus floor- or socket augmentation, may reduce the handling of the bone graft during application and its adaptation to the defect. Intra-operatively, cerabone® plus performs optimally when bleeding at the defect site can be controlled, as in the case of well visible defects, e.g. in lateral augmentation.
