This in vitro study utilized methylene blue dye to evaluate the extent of apical microleakage following reverse filling procedures. Forty human canine root canals were biomechanically prepared and obturated with laterally condensed gutta-percha and Roth's 801 Elite grade zinc oxide and eugenol sealer. The surfaces of the specimens were covered with red enamel paint, leaving only the apical foramen in a patent condition. The roots were then apically resected and randomly placed into one of four… CONTINUE READING
