Bio-Cap is a single-component, no-mix, light-cure pulp capping material. You can also use it as a liner for sensitivity-free placement of posterior restorations. Bio-Cap has a unique formula that has demonstrated clinical biocompatibility. Bio-Cap is a self-adhesive, dentin bonding, resin ionomer dispensed with handy, disposable needle tips.
Bio-Cap can be cured in 3 seconds with a Sapphire PAC Light, or 10 seconds with an FLASHlite® Magna 4.0 or other LED curing lights.

Defective amalgam restoration (First Molar).
Following amalgam removal, Dector (Caries Detector) is scrubbed into preparation.
After removal of decay, the cavity preparation shows no Dector present and is now caries free.
The preparation is etched with Etch-n-Seal, Den-Mats medium viscosity etchant.
After rinsing and gentle drying, Tenure A and B is applied, followed by Tenure S and light cured for 5 seconds with the Sapphire PAC light.
A 1mm base layer of Biocap is placed over the pupal floor due to the depth of the cavity preparation. The Biocap is then light cured.
NOTE: Biocap is self adhesive and and does not require the use of a bonding agent. Since the remainder of the restoration will be filled with Virtuoso Flowable (An esthetic hybrid composite resin) the clinitian decided to take surface preparation steps for that material.
A 1mm layer of Virtuoso Flowable in shade A3.5 is placed as a dentin mimic and light cured.
"Bio-Cap is an awesome product! I have used it successfully in deep restorations with pulp exposure and it has eliminated post-operative sensitivity in my composite restorations. Recently, I used Bio-Cap on a 15-year-old patient who was told he needed a root canal on a tooth that had very deep carious lesions. I was able to avoid the pulp and successfully restore his tooth."

"I have found that Bio-Cap (I have been a fan of Geristore for years) has added another dimension to my practice as I have found that it's an excellent base to any procedure that I do. It is extremely kind to the pulpar tissue. No more guess work as far as what base to use."
