Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare the coronal sealing ability of six different dental materials: Three MTA-based cements and three established restorative materials by in vitro dye penetration method. For in vitro infiltration experiments, seventy extracted single-rooted human teeth were used. After crowns of teeth were reduced, root canals were prepared, and filled with gutta-percha cone. Teeth were randomly divided into 6 groups with 10 teeth per group. The orifice of each tooth was prepared to 3 mm depth and filled with the following materials: (I) ProRoot WMTA; (II) EndoCem Zr; (III) Angelus White; (IV) LuxaCore; (V) Fuji II LC; and (VI) Elite. After 5,000 cycles of thermocycling between 5°C and 55°C, dye penetration of each specimen was measured. The order of less dye infiltration of coronal filling materials was: ProRoot WMTA<LuxaCore, Angelus White<EndoCem Zr<Fuji II LC<Elite (p<0.05).
