Its proprietary formulation allows for a command set with visible light curing while maintaining ease of placement due to thixotropic properties. The proprietary hydrophilic resin formulation creates a stable and durable liner or base. The chemical formulation of TheraCal LC consists of tri-calcium silicate particles in a hydrophilic monomer, which supplies calcium ions that facilitates calcium release. The calcium release and alkaline pH promotes sealing of the pulp, hydroxy apatite formation, and secondary dentin bridge formation. TheraCal LC is moisture tolerant and improves the ability to form a durable seal.TheraCal LC is available in a 1-1g syringe and a 4:-1g syringe package.
