This study aimed to compare the apical sealing of epoxy resin-based and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA)-based root
canal sealer. Twenty four permanent central incisors were selected at random and divided into 4 groups (N = 24),
namely positive control group, negative control group, Fillapex obturator group (MTA, and TopSeal group (epoxy
resin). The samples were decoronated, root canal preparation, then kept in incubator of 37 C for 24 hours. Samples
were immersed in india ink for 7 days. The samples were washed with distilled water, dried and nail varnish removed.
The samples was grooved longitudinally on both side, and then carefully sectioned. Penetration was measured using a
stereo microscope and given score 0-4. Measurements were analyzed statistically. By using the Mann Whitney and
Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests, there is no significant difference between the apical sealing of the epoxy resin root canal
sealer with MTA root canal sealer based (p>0.05). It means that the apical sealing of the epoxy resin root canal sealer
based comparable with MTA root canal sealer based. It was concluded that the apical sealing of epoxy resin-based
sealer does not different to the MTA-based sealer.
