The current concept among clinicians is that after complete debridement, a three-dimensional obturation of the root canal space that is free of inflammation constitutes the key factor for successful endodontic therapy. Different sealer formulations have been subjected to extensive research with respect to their mechanical and biological properties, reflecting the prevailing belief that the appropriate selection of a sealer and its clinical performance may influence, at least in part, the outcome of endodontic therapy. Many techniques have been suggested and evaluated, most of them advocating the use of gutta-percha as the core material and with sealer of a different composition to fill the residual gaps between the individual gutta-percha points and between the gutta-percha and the canal wall. Evaluating the sealing competency of the sealers to the root canal walls is utmost consequential for the presage of outcome of treatment.
