The Growing Thera Family:
By now, we’re sure you’ve met the Thera Family: our selection of award-winning, calcium-releasing products that offer a unique array of benefits for both dentists and patients. We are excited to continue to expand this product line with the announcement of our newest material.
TheraBase is a dual-cured, calcium and fluoride-releasing, self-adhesive base/liner. Utilizing the THERA technology, TherBase chemically bond to tooth structure, and releases and recharges calcium and fluoride ions1. TheraBase's calcium release generates an alkaline pH which promotes pulp vitality2. It is a dual-cured material that will polymerize even in deep restorations where light cannot reach.
