Introduction: The use of aseptic procedures & thorough cleaning are crucial to the effectiveness of root canal therapy. Hence the current study is conducted to assess the impact of herbal & chemical disinfectant on the properties of GP.
Material and Methods: From a sealed packet, four different groups of 60 GP cones of size F3 Pro Taper were taken out. Except for the control group, the investigational groups were cleaned with, 90% AV gel, 5.25% SH & 2% CHX. On a testing machine, the GP cones' tensile strength was determined, & a stereomicroscope was used to examine the surface roughness.
Results: From lowest to greatest, the mean tensile strength was 10.13 for 5.25 percent SH, 12.05 for 2% CHX, 12.56 for 90% AV, & 17.43 for the control group. In contrast to the control & AV groups, which had minimal surface pitting, the 5.25% SH group under stereomicroscopy had substantial surface pitting.
Conclusion: At 90%, Aloe vera gel may be used as a more secure GP cone disinfection.
