Aim: The objective of this study was to evaluate and compare the microleakage exhibited by three different root end filling materials, BioAggregate, Biodentine and MTA plus, in root ends resected and root end cavities prepared with Er:YAG hard tissue laser using dye penetration technique under stereomicroscope.
Methodology: Fifty-six freshly extracted human maxillary central incisors were selected which showed closed apices and straight canals, they were decoronated at the level of CEJ and obturated. The canal orifices were sealed with Composite material. All samples were stored at 37 ± 1°C and 100% relative humidity for 21 days. A VSP Er:YAG laser device was used to prepare root-end Class I cavities. The cavities were enlarged and deepened to 3 mm depth and 2 mm diameter with laser. The prepared root end were then sealed with bioceramic (MTA Plus, Biodentine and Bioaggregate). They were then evaluated for microleakage using dye penetration (Rhodamine B dye) and evaluated under stereomicroscope.
Results: The mean microleakage values, arranged in order, starting from the least to the maximum, are Group II MTA Plus (1.1042) < Group III < Biodentine (1.2083) < Group I Bioaggregate (2.1806).
Conclusion: The obtained results showed that dye leakage was present with all the three materials, with the highest values exhibited by Bioaggregate when compared to MTA plus and Biodentine, which showed significantly less amount of leakage.
