An In-Vitro Evaluation of Apical Sealing Ability of ENDOREZ® CEMENT and ENDOREZ® RESIN COATED GUTTA-PERCHA Using Single Cone Technique and Cold Lateral Condensation
One of the keys to successful root canal therapy is to adequately seal the prepared root canal space at the completion of the endodontic treatment [1- 3]. The purpose of the obturation phase is to prevent the reinfection of root canals that have been biomechanically cleaned, shaped and disinfected using instrumentation, irrigation and medication procedures .
Successful obturation requires the use of materials and techniques capable of densely filling the entire root canal system and providing a fluid tight seal from the apical segment of the canal to the cavo-surface margin . Normally, a root canal filling is associated with a hard core, like gutta-percha, and a sealer to better adapt the core material and complete the seal of the root canal filling in the most effectual manner . The sealer fills the irregularities of the root canal wall and the dentinal tub…
