BisiCAL is a bioactive light-cure resin reinforced pulp capping material with MTA-f­illers.

The release of calcium-ions supports the formation of tertiary dentine.

The result is a safe direct and indirect pulp protection.

The high alkaline pH level has bactericidal effects and thus supports healing and protects against hypersensitivity. BisiCAL is moisture tolerant, insoluble and shows a high radiopacity. Thanks to its thixotropic behavior and with the supplied needle-tip BisiCAL can be applied very precisely, even in deep cavity preparations.

  • Light cure of BisiCAL ensures controlled setting. After 40 seconds of light curing the next clinical step is possible.
  • BisCAL is a one-component material, mixing times and errors are avoided.
  • The light curing process ensures a fast and controlled f­ixation of the material.
  • The high pH value creates an environment that is hostile to bacteria.
  • Thanks to bioactive f­illers, tertiary dentin (hydroxyapatite (Ca5(PO4)3(OH)) is formed by releasing Ca2+ and OH-ions.
  • The pulp is protected and supported in healing.

Difference between BisiCAL and TheraCal LC:

The BisiCAL is as TheraCal a direct Pulp Capping material.

There are some differences:

  • BisiCAL releases more Calcium than TheraCal

Calcium release after 24 h (μg/cm2)

BisiCAL:          420

TheraCal:        328

Flexural strength (MPa)

BisiCAL:          28 MPa

TheraCal:        27 MPa

Compressive strength (MPa)

BisiCAL:          < 90 MPa

TheraCal:           83 MPa

BisiCAL has Greater adhesion to dentin – will not pop-off.

BisiCAL has MTA bioactive fillers, tertiary dentin (hydroxyapatite (Ca5(PO4)3(OH)) is formed by releasing Ca2+ and OH[1]ions.

The pulp is protected and supported in healing.

TheraCal does not have MTA Fillers

MTA-Filled Dental Resin

Modified dental resin with MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate) fillers is a dental material that combines the properties of resin-based composites and MTA, a biocompatible dental material commonly used in endodontic procedures.

MTA is composed of fine hydrophilic particles, primarily consisting of tricalcium silicate, dicalcium silicate, tricalcium aluminate, and calcium sulfate.

It has been shown to have excellent biocompatibility and sealing ability, making it an ideal material for use in dental procedures.

By incorporation MTA fillers into dental resin, a new material can be created that has improved

  • mechanical properties,
  • biocompatibility, and
  • sealing ability.

The addition of MTA fillers can also improve the radiopacity of the dental resin, making it easier to detect on X-rays.
