Abstract

Introduction : The purpose of this invitro study was to evaluate the post obturation fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth obturated with new obturating systems such as Realseal system, GuttaFlow obturation system, conventional lateral compaction technique and Microseal obturation system. Materials and Methods : Fifty extracted single rooted teeth were selected and sectioned at the CEJ. The root canals were instrumented using EasyRace files. The teeth were randomly divided into 5 groups of 10 teeth each. Group I served as negative control and was instrumented and not obturated. The other groups were obturated with new obturating systems. The specimens were evaluated for vertical fracture resistance using Instron universal testing machine. Results : According to the study it was found that the Resilon with Realseal displayed higher mean fracture load in comparison to other experimental groups. Conclusion : Obturation of roots with a resin based obturation material increased the fracture resistance of root canal filled tooth to vertical fracture.
