Question Asked on 12/13/2018

Can TheraCal LC be used in pediatric cases for either direct or indirect pulp capping?

Answer Response by Dr. Suh on 12/13/2018

Yes, TheraCal LC is indicated for both direct and indirect pulp capping, and can be used safely with pediatric patients. TheraCal LC will provide pulpal protection and decrease the risk of post-operative sensitivity in cases where deep preparations are needed or where carious or mechanical exposures occur. The ability to light-cure the material will allow for faster working time as well, which may be helpful when dealing with younger patients.
