AIM:

To evaluate the solubility of five root canal sealers in orange oil, eucalyptol, xylol and chloroform solvents.

METHODOLOGY:

The solubility of RoekoSeal, Sealer 26, Epiphany, Endomethasone and EZ-Fill sealers was assessed in orange oil, eucalyptol, xylol, chloroform and distilled water. Seventy-five samples of root canal sealers were prepared and then divided into five groups for immersion in solvent for 2, 5 or 10 min. The means of loss weight were determined for each material in each solvent at all immersion periods, and the values were compared by factorial analysis of variance (anova) and SNK multiple comparisons.

RESULTS:

In the orange and eucalyptus oil groups, there was no significant difference among RoekoSeal, Sealer26, Epiphany and EZ-Fill at the three immersion periods (P > 0.05). With xylol, no significant differences were found at 5 and 10 min (P > 0.05) for each root sealer. Orange and eucalyptus oil solvents were as effective as chloroform at 2 min in dissolving all the root sealers.

CONCLUSIONS:

Xylol was the most effective solvent followed by the chloroform and the essential oils (eucalyptol and orange oil). Orange oil behaved in a similar way to eucalyptus oil.
