Bisco recently introduced TheraCal PT, a biocompatible, dual-cured, resin-modified calcium silicate designed for pulpotomy treatment. The new product maintains tooth vitality by performing as a barrier and protectant of the dental pulpal complex.
TheraCal PT’s chemical formulation consists of synthetic Portland cement calcium silicate particles in a unique hydrophilic matrix that facilitates calcium release. The product is radiopaque, allowing for easy identification and differentiation from recurrent decay and other restorative materials. The physical properties resist breakdown and degradation, leading to a durable seal, and it is also indicated for direct and indirect pulp capping (liner) and as a base.

Safe’N’Clear recently announced its latest product, an FDA-approved ASTM F2100 Level 1 face mask, the Communicator. The mask provides a clear view that works to improve communication comprehension more readily between dental providers and patients. The mask is made from a comfortable material and has elastic ear loops with an adjustable nosepiece design. The masks come in a dispenser box containing 40 single-use, disposable masks.
Clinicians habitually pull their masks down from their faces so their patients can understand them, thus defeating the purpose of using a mask. With the Communicator clear mask, dental hygienists and dentists can interact with their patients, providing quality care without compromising protection.
