  • Abstract

    Microorganisms and their products are considered to be the primary etiological agents in endodontic diseases.[1,2] Viable microorganisms remaining after root canal preparation and disinfection contribute significantly to failure in endodontic therapy. This study evaluated the in vitro antimicrobial activity of two endodontic sealers zinc oxide eugenol [ZOE] sealer and AH plus on E. faecalis (standard strain) by agar well diffusion technique based on zone of inhibition. The results showed that ZOE is a better root canal sealant with higher antibacterial activity than AH plus.
