Abstract

This study aims to determine the differences in microleakage of root canal obturation using two different sealers, zinc oxide-eugenol based sealer and epoxy resin based sealer. The subject of the research was using 32 mandibular premolars. The subjects were randomly divided into 2 groups each consisting of 16 teeth. The group I was root canal obturation with zinc oxide-eugenol based sealer and group II was root canal obturation with epoxy resin based sealer, respectively. The entire root surface coated with two coats of nail polish except the apical 1 mm and soaked with 2% methylene blue solution for 1 week at 37°C. Penetration of the color of methylene blue solution is an indicator of an apical leakage. The results showed that root canal obturation with epoxy resin based sealer has lower apical leakage than root canal obturation zinc oxide-eugenol sealer (p<0.05).
