What is the recommended method for hydrating PentOS OI™ Flex and how long should it be hydrated?
Hydrating methods for PentOS OI™ Flex.
PentOS OI™ Flex can be hydrated using the patient’s blood or with saline solution. To accelerate graft reconstitution, submerge PentOS OI™ Flex in saline for 10 to 30 minutes and manipulate periodically, especially for larger size grafts. A minimum of 15 minutes of hydration is necessary to start achieving the level of flexibility needed to prevent cracking the Flex veneer.
Graft pliability may occur sooner than 10 to 30 minutes.
