    Author(s): Mohammed S Khalil* and Anas F Mahdee

    Aim: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the intracanal adaptation, intratubular penetration, and push-out bond strength of Total fill Bioceramic, AH Plus, Gutta-flow BIOSEAL and MTAF sealers. Material and method: Sixty freshly extracted human lower 1st premolars were collected, drowned, and endodontically filled using different types of sealers. Specimens were randomly divided into four groups (A, B, C, and D) (n=15) depending on the sealer type (Total Full Bioceramic, AH Plus, Gutta-flow BIOSEAL and MTAF sealers respectively). The used sealer in five samples from each group was mixed with 0.1% fluorescein die before obturating the canals with Thermafil. These samples then were embedded in clear acrylic before sectioning into 0.5 mm disks at 3, 7 and 11 mm from the root apex. Disks were examined by fluorescent microsco.. Read More»
