ABSTRACT:The aim of this in-vitro study was to compare the depth of sealer penetration into radicular dentinal tubules after irrigation activation with endoactivator, irrisafe, endoirrigator plus and endovac. Seventy-five tooth samples were instrumented with the protaper universal rotary system and randomly divided into five groups based on the irrigant activation technique used. Obturation was performed using AH plus sealer labeled with fluorescent dye. Two transverse sections were taken corresponding to 2mm and 4mm from the apex and analyzed under confocal laser scanning microscope for measurement of the depth of sealer penetration. The results revealed that the depth of sealer penetration was found to be superior in Endoaoirrigator plus and Irrisafe groups compared to Endoactivator and Endovac groups. An increasing trend of sealer penetration from the apical to the coronal third was observed in all the groups.
