Abstract
The aim of this study was to compare the volumetric expansion of gutta-percha in the presence of eugenol or physiologic saline over time. Sections of gutta-percha cones were scanned to determine their total volume and surface area. They were then placed in sealed test tubes with either 2 mu L eugenol or 2 mu L saline and allowed to soak for 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days. The results were scanned again to determine the volumetric changes in the material after placement in the test solutions. The results were statistically analyzed by using t tests and analysis of variance. Specimens soaked in eugenol showed a dramatic increase in volumetric expansion versus the saline group at all time periods. Sealers that incorporate eugenol could be attributed to gutta-percha volumetric expansion over time, thereby creating a better seal of the obturation material. (J Endod 2008;34:1528-1532)
