  • A light-cured, resin-modified calcium silicate material, TheraCal LC is ideal for direct and indirect pulp capping.
  • This versatile product can also be used as a protective base or liner.
  • TheraCal LC’s significant calcium release stimulates*1 hydroxyapatite and secondary dentin bridge formation;2,3 it also promotes healing and apatite formation.2,4
  • In addition, it protects and insulates the pulp.5,6
  • Moisture tolerant1 and radiopaque, it can be placed under restorative materials and cements.




  • Indicated for total-, self- and selective-etch techniques, Bisco’s All-Bond Universal allows clinicians the versatility to simplify their adhesion protocols.
