Dycal is a calcium hydroxide rigid-setting material for direct and indirect pulp capping, and a protective liner under dental filling materials, cements and other base materials.
Dycal stimulates the formation of secondary dentine, is acid resistant and of low solubility. Dycal provides potential for improved esthetics, as well as clinically proven performance with quick set times and excellent handling characteristics. Dycal is offered in two shades, Ivory and Dentin, which allows for more natural looking esthetic restorations.
Dycal Calcium Hydroxide is a radiopaque material used worldwide for cavity lining and pulp capping. Its system prevents small variations in the base to catalyst ratio, affecting the working and setting times of the material. The composite sets hard quickly and withstanding amalgam condensation, allowing for the immediate placement of restorative material or an intermediary base.
