Product Description
With its unique ability to stimulate apatite, TheraCal LC, a light-cured, resin-modified calcium silicate, is ideal for direct and indirect pulp capping and for use as a protective base/liner. Because of its excellent handling properties, TheraCal LC stays where it is place to efficiently aid in the regenerative process. Its alkaline pH promotes healing and results in virtually no postoperative sensitivity.

For pulp capping and lining, TheraCal LC is easy to use and simple to place.   A lifesaver.” That’s how a dentist with 35 years of experience described TheraCal LC . As one of 15 dentists who participated in this Dental Product Shopper evaluation, he went on to say, “I had given up on [another product], so I really had no alternative.

TheraCal LC An Ideal Option for Deep Cavity Preparations

TheraCal LC An Ideal Option for Deep Cavity Preparations The quest for the ideal pulp capping material has spurred a lot of research on various formulations. A model pulp capping material should maintain vitality, reduce sensitivity, promote biologic regenerative activity and therefore dentinal health, encourage re-mineralization, and be easy to use. Although both glass-ionomer cements and calcium-hydroxide materials have been recommended for deep-cavity lining, their performance is less than desirable when in direct contact with pulpal tissues. MTA is difficult to place and requires a setting time that is clinically much too long. ...

Great sensitivity protection!
I use TheraCal in areas where I feel a little extra protection is needed to prevent sensitivity under my restorations. It's easy to place and light cures quickly. I've been very pleased with it.

Can't Practice without It
I try to practice minimally invasive dentistry. Yet, there are times that the decay is so close to the pulp . I will use ozone gas and then place Theracal as a base. It is easy to use, and most important to me is that the pH of the product is well in the basic range..way better for the pulp and healing

Great Product
We've had wonderful results using Theracal! Dr. Ryan does anything and everything to not have the patient incur extra fees due to going ahead with root canals just because! We probably do an average of 1-3 pulp caps daily, the majority of our patients haven't been to a dentist in years therefore we are seeing them when it's almost too late! But in the 3 1/2 years using Theracal we're at a count of 6 patients needing further treatment of a root canal, outstanding results for the product!

The best evolution of CaOH therapy ever
Been practicing dentistry for 45 years, so I have tried a lot of solutions. I love the fact it is not water soluble. Very easy to place. Becomes quite hard as compared to traditional CaOH. Certainly a step up from the traditional glass ionomers.

Cuts down on RCTs
Since I started to use Theracal as my preferred pulp cap treatment a few years ago, the number of RCTs I've ended up doing on pulp capped teeth has dropped. Where I used to have several RCTs a week, now it's one or two on average... I'm still doing my fair share of herodontics and pulp caps, and my other techniques haven't changed all that much. The difference maker seems to be using Theracal for pulp caps...

TheraCal LC
I've been using TheraCal LC for about 3 years now and love it. Extremely easy to use, good for direct and indirect pulp caps. I've realized that teeth that require pulp caps and are treated with TheraCal LC don't seem to be heard from again.

Won't practice without Theracal
I work in a free, low income clinic and we see a lot of massive, pulp threatening decay. We operate on grants and donations, so we don't have money for extras but Theracal is worth every penny.
