Background:Marginal microleakage occurs when restorations are poorly adapted to the cavity walls which leads to penetration of bacteria, fluid and nutrient into the marginal gap. Aim: The study aimed to evaluate the effect of thermocycling on marginal sealing ability of two root-end filling materials i.e. MTA Plus and Biodentine. Materials and Methods: An in vitro study was conducted at Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics in Institute of Dental Sciences (IDS), Jammu, Jammu and Kashmir, India. Forty extracted teeth with single root were decoronated maintaining a standardized length of 16mm. Biomechanical preparation and obturation was done for all the teeth. Samples were stored at 37oC and 100% humidity for seven days. Apical 3mm was resected and cavities were prepared which were randomly divided into two experimental groups with twenty samples each. The cavities were filled with MTA Plus in group I and Biodentine in group II. These groups were further divided into two subgroups of ten each (n=10). The second subgroup of both the groups did not receive any treatment and the first subgroup samples were subjected to 500 thermocycles in water bath at temperature ranges between 5oC and 55oC with a dwell time of 30 second. The samples were immersed in methylene blue dye and after through washing they were sectioned longitudinally. Examination was done under stereomicroscope to measure the depth of penetration. Statistical Analysis: The data collected were put to statistical analysis by one-way ANOVA (analysis of variance) and post hoc tests. Results: The average depth of dye penetration was least for Biodentine when thermocycling treatment was not given (0.13mm) and maximum value was depicted by MTA Plus when undergone thermal cycles (0.57mm). It is also noted that no significant difference is seen in Biodentine with or without artificial aging procedure. Conclusion:Biodentine showed least amount of microleakage, thus a better sealing ability.Alsothere was little effect of thermocycling onmicroleakage of both the materials.
