Aim: The aim of the study is to compare the apical sealing ability offered by Nano sealer and Tricalcium Silicate Based Sealer when used with Single Cone and Thermoplasticized obturation technique.

Materials and Methods: A sample of forty extracted upper central incisors were selected and were decoronated at the Cemento-Enamel Junction. Working length was determined using #15 k-file and the root canals were prepared using ProTaper Gold rotary file system till F3 size. The outer surface of the samples were coated with 3 layers of nail varnish except at the apical foramen for the dye penetration. The samples were randomly divided into four groups (n = 10) according to the root canal sealer and obturation technique used. The samples were immersed in 2% methylene blue dye for 72 hrs. The samples will be longitudinally sectioned and will be examined under stereomicroscope for microleakage evaluation, followed by scanning electron microscope for potential sealer penetration.

Statistical Analysis: Statistical analysis were performed using two-way-ANOVA test. The level of significance was set to p < 0.05

Results: According to the results obtained, thermoplasticized obturation technique led to reduced microleakage. Moreover, dye penetration values were reduced for tricalcium-silicate based sealer.
In terms of microleakage, thermoplasticized obturation technique seems promising when combined with tricalcium silicate based sealer.
