This study compared and assessed the adaptability of a premixed bioceramic sealer and the formation of a physical barrier between the filling material and the dentinal tubule penetration. Bio-C Sealer (Angelus, Londrina, Brazil), a Bioceramic Endodontic Sealer with the combination of MTA (Meta BioMed) Ceraseal and Cold fowable, polydimethylsiloxane based root canal sealer with nano silver (Prevest Denpro) Nanoseal-S.

Materials and Methods: 45 wide roots, with single straight canals and formed apices, were endodontically prepared and divided into three groups (n = 15) according to the sealer used for the root canal lling: Group 1: Bio-C Sealer Group 2: Ceraseal MTA Group 3: Nanoseal-S.As controls, three samples were kept. After the canals were led, the samples were sliced and imaged under Scanning Electron Microscopy to analyse tubular penetration and sealer adaption. The Shapiro-Wilk, Levene, and Mann- Whitney tests were used to analyse the data (P0.05). Furthermore, in all three-thirds of the cases studied, Bio-C Sealer demonstrated better tubule penetration than Nanoseal-s and Ceraseal.
