Abstract

Abstract The working time, setting time, set hardness, setting pH, sealing potential, and biocompatibility of an experimental root canal sealer without eugenol were compared with those of two other root canal sealers that contain eugenol. The working and setting times for the sealer without eugenol were longer than those for the sealers with eugenol at 25 C. The setting times for all sealers were similar at approximately 37 C. Set hardness, pH, and sealing ability were similar for all the sealers tested. At less than 96 hours, the sealer without eugenol was more tissue-compatible than the sealers containing eugenol. After six months, the biocompatibility of all the sealers tested was similar.
