Purpose: To evaluate the ability sealing of glass ionomer and composite resin with or without 1-mm thickness of Coltosol on the root-canal filling material.
Methods: Root-canal treatment was completed on 50-extracted human mandibular unirradicular. The teeth were divided into six groups: G1, positive control; G2, negative control; G3, glass ionomer (Vidrion R); G4, Coltosol + Vidrion R; G5, composite resin; and, G6, Coltosol + composite resin. For G1 and G2 five teeth each were used and for the other groups, ten teeth each. The teeth were thermocycled and evaluated for microleakage using methylene blue dye. Specimens were sectioned and measurements made to the maximum point of dye penetration. The mean dye penetration (%) for each group was compared by ANOVA and Tukey’s test for post-hoc comparisons (α = 0.05).
Results: The means and standard deviations of microleakage were: G1, 96.56 (±2.31); G2, 0.00 (±0.00); G3, 68.76 (±24.63); G4, 24.42 (±8.33); G5, 20.06 (±9.35); and, G6, 12.86 (±6.08).
Conclusion: It was concluded that none of the materials were able to prevent microleakage. Composite resin alone or combined with coltosol and glass ionomer associated with coltosol resulted in less microleakage than the glass ionomer used alone.
