We talk with Dr. Paul Child, executive vice president of Bisco, about TheraCal LC, how it’s changing the materials market and what dentists are saying about the product.

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 biological properties.

“We’ve heard a lot of fantastic comments,” Child explains. “A lot of doctors are using this as a pulpal protectant for a direct or indirect pulpal exposure and they’re placing it on top of moist dentin. What they’re finding out is … doctors can tell patients that it may help regenerate the tooth structure and help to heal the tooth structure.”

He added he’s been hearing dentists are completing less and less root canal procedures because of the healing capacity of TheraCal LC.

TheraCal LC works 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.
