What is the concentration of the citric acid used?

First of all I would like to thank you for this thorough lecture.

My question is about the concentration of the citric acid. Would it be the same as endodontic's citric acid (about 40%) or we have to use a lower concentration. I would also like to ask if the citric acid is irritating the surrounding bone (since isolation of any kind would be difficult) and how much time should I use it on implant surface. 

Thanks in advance and many thanks to supporting this community with your lectures.

Sincerely Yours

Christos A. Koutrogiannis DDS, MSc
