Abstract

Background: Bond strength of root canal sealers is mainly influenced by the surface tension of the root canal wall. Heat, or the use of a surfactant might reduce surface tension and it is known that surface tension of an EDTA solution significantly affected from temperature rise. QMix is a novel endodontic irrigant for smear layer removal containing EDTA, chlorhexidine and a detergent. There is no data regarding the influence of the temperature of the EDTA and QMix on the push-out bond strength of root canal sealers.
