    Say for a indirect pulp cap...you place dycal(caoh). Should you follow it with RMGI such as fuji liner? I read somewhere...I think my dental decks where they said to do that. I usually just place the dycal and thats it. Thoughts.

    We were told that CaOH is way too weak to be placed without be covered by a base that provides some strength and a seal to the tooth. Non-pulpal irritating materials that bond to tooth structure and have reasonable strength are supposed to be the best (e.g. GI or polycarb).

    We use Dycal followed by Vitrebond.
