The quality of the apical seal obtained with laterally condensed gutta-percha and an experimental sealer (Scotchbond) as compared with a commonly used sealer (Tubliseal) was assessed in 40 recently extracted maxillary canines. By using 2% methylene blue dye as a tracer, the quality of the apical seals was assessed by measuring the linear dye penetration. Canals obturated with gutta-percha and Scotchbond leaked significantly less than when gutta-percha and Tubliseal were used.
