Abstract

Endodontic sealers should demonstrate adhesive properties to dentin to reach the objectives of the obturation of the canal space and seal the canal space both apically and coronally, thus decreasing the chance of endodontic treatment failure. Adhesion to dentin with bonding to the tooth structure in the canal may provide greater resistance to tooth fracture and greater clinical longevity of an endodontically treated tooth. In this study, human single-canal canines were endodontically treated and obturated with two different endodontic obturation systems (Epiphany/Resilon system and gutta-percha/AH 26). Thirty roots (divided into two groups) were horizontally sliced for a push-out strength test, which was performed from apical to coronal in the universal testing machine. Differences in push-out bond strength between the two different material systems were obtained using repeated measures analysis of variance on ranks. Gutta-percha had significantly higher push-out bond strength than Epiphany (p <0.0001).
