Abstract

The aim of this in vitro study was to compare the sealing ability of Resilon/Epiphany to gutta-percha and Roth or AH Plus sealers. Leakage of the obturated roots was measured using the fluid filtration technique. There were eight groups of 12 teeth each. Group 1: obturated with Resilon/Epiphany; group 2: obturated with gutta-percha/Roth, allowed to set for 3 wk; group 3: obturated with gutta-percha/Roth; group 4: obturated with Resilon/Epiphany using a single cone; group 5: obturated with Resilon cones without using primer/sealer (positive control); group 6: obturated with gutta-percha/AH Plus; group 7: same as group 6, but allowed to set for 8 h; and group 8: sealed on the outside with three layers of nail varnish (negative control). The results showed that only the positive control (group 5) leaked significantly more (p < 0.05) than the other groups. There was no effect of time on leakage. Resilon/Epiphany was no better than gutta-percha/Roth or gutta-percha/AH Plus at sealing root canals.
