    Author(s): Nur A Alalaf* and Emad Farhan Alkhalidi

    Introduction: This study aimed comparatively evaluate the relationship between penetration in simulated lateral canals and apical microleakage of AH Plus Jet, TotalFill BC and GuttaFlow Bioseal root canal sealers. Materials and methods: Thirty single-rooted extracted human mandibular premolars were decoronated and the root canal length was standardized at15mm, simulated lateral canals were made. After chemo-mechanical preparation, the specimens were randomized into three experimental groups according to the root canal sealers: TotalFill BC, AH Plus Jet, and GuttaFlow Bioseal root canal sealers. In all groups, root canal filling was performed with a single cone technique. The specimens were immersed in 2% methylene blue dye solution and then, subjected to the clearing technique. A stereomicroscope was used to observe the specimens. The penetration depth of root canal sealers in simulat.. Read More»
