The importance of apical seal has always been stressed in endodontic therapy. Root canal sealers have been used along with gutta percha to enhance the seal. The apical sealing ability of AH26/silverfree, a modified version of AH26, a resin based sealer was compared with tubliseal, a zincoxide eugenol based sealer using methylene blue dye penetration method. AH26/silverfree showed superior sealing ability.
