Product Profile: TheraCal LC, All-Bond Universal and Duo-Link Universal
Calcium silicate liner and universal materials are ideal for restorative cases.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- 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.
- Offering the convenience of single-bottle application, the product can be used on wet, moist or dry tooth structure.
- It’s designed to provide strong, dependable bonds to all substrates.
- All-Bond Universal virtually eliminates postoperative sensitivity.
- Specially formulated for cementing indirect restorations, this adhesive resin cement is highly radiopaque and offers easy cleanup.
- Ideal for all CAD/CAM restorative materials, the Duo-Link Universal system kit contains all the components needed for cementation, including primers.
- This material provides predictable curing in either light-cure or self-cure modes, thus ensuring strong, long-lasting restorations.
Indicated for pulp capping or use as a base or liner, TheraCal LC is formulated to encourage healing2,4 and promote apatite formation.2,3 This versatile material is complemented by Bisco’s All-Bond Universal and Duo-Link Universal systems, which offer predictable, long-lasting adhesion in direct or indirect restorative procedures.
