Comparative in vitro study of the bond strength on dentin of two sealing cements: BC-SEALER and AH-PLUS
Gutta-percha with a sealer cement has been used for many years as a fill for root canal therapies, new materials and techniques have been recently developed that could increase the success rate of endodontic treatments. It is important to compare materials that are used today, with those that are coming to the market, which possesses considerable advantages that may well increase the rate of successful treatments. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the adhesion properties of a new bioceramic sealer: EndoSequence® BC SealerTM using BC Points. For this, the following techniques were used: Single cone obturation and lateral condensation with AH-Plus. The results demonstrated differences between the groups of AH-Plus and BC-Sealer. On the bond strength that was applied in the different thirds of the root canal, the sealer cement BC-Sealer proved to be the best adhesion material in all thirds of the root canal being significantly more noticeable in the apical third. The two sealants are effective root canal adhesives, used properly, any of there may grant an acceptable result.
