Abstract

Objectives: The sealing properties of a one-step obturation post-placement technique consisting of Resilon-capped fibre post-obturators were compared with a two-step technique based on initial Resilon root filling following by 24 h-delayed fibre post-placement. Methods: Thirty root segments were shaped to size 40, 0.04 taper and filled with: (1) InnoEndo obturators; (2) Resilon/24 h-delayed FibreKor post-cementation. Obturator, root filling and post-cementation procedures were performed using InnoEndo bonding agent/ dual-cured root canal sealer. Fluid flow rate through the filled roots was evaluated at 10 psi using a computerised fluid filtration model before root resection and after 3 and 9 mmapical resections. Fluid flow data were analysed using two-way repeated measures ANOVA and Tukey test to examine the effects of root-filling post-placement techniques and root resection lengths on fluid leakage from the filled canals (a = 0.05). Results: A significantly greater amount of fluid leakage was observed with the one-step technique when compared with two-step technique. No difference in fluid leakage was observed among intact canals and canals resected at different lengths for both materials. Conclusions: The seal of root canals achieved with the one-step obturator is less effective than separate Resilon root fillings followed by a 24-h delay prior to the fibre post-placement. Incomplete setting of the sealer and restricted relief of polymerisation shrinkage stresses may be responsible for the inferior seal of the one-step root-filling/post-restoration technique.
