Abstract : An artificial standard root canal system was used to evaluate the ability of gutta percha filling techniques. No significant difference was noted in the abilities of chloropercha, Kloroperka, and chloroform-dip to replicate the canal system. All three chloroform techniques replicated the system significantly better than lateral condensation. In volumetric evaluation, the chloropercha fills decreased in volume 12.42% in 2 weeks while Kloroperka decreased only 4.86% & chloroform-dip only 1.40%. How significant the 1.40% shrinkage is in relation to seal is unknown. (Author)
