Answer Response by on 5/7/2019

TheraCal PT is a resin-modified calcium silicate that has enhanced physical properties when compared to MTA material. Essentially, the primary chemical used in both materials are similar but TheraCal PT contains a unique hydrophilic resin, which facilitates calcium release. Similar to MTA material, TheraCal PT has an alkaline pH.
