The purpose of this study was to test the apical seal provided by a recently introduced low-fusing gutta-percha, GPII, compared with lateral condensation, with or without a sealer. For this study, 84 roots with straight circular canals separated from extracted teeth were prepared to K-file size 45. A standardized gutta-percha master cone was fitted to 80 of these roots. The roots were then randomly separated into four groups of 20 each and filled with GPII or laterally condensed gutta-percha… CONTINUE READING
