TheraCal LC is a radiopaque, light-curable flowable composite containing “apatite stimulating” calcium silicates to protect and stimulate pulpal and dentin repair. It’s the optimal replacement to calcium hydroxide, glass ionomer-based or RMGI materials because of its optimal handling, ease of placement and enhanced regenerative properties.

It performs as a barrier and protectant of the dental pulpal complex. With high physical properties and low solubility immediately following light cure, the composite is well suited for all deep cavity preparations. Easy placement is facilitated by a 20-second light cure and ability to be syringed directly onto the preparation and pulp without pre-mixing or the need for any additional activators.

The proprietary hydrophilic resin formulation creates a stable and durable liner. Following placement of TheraCal LC the final restorative may be placed immediately.
