The objectives of filling, or obturating, the canal space are: 1. To prevent percolation of peri-radicular exudates into the pulp space via the apical foramina or lateral canals. 2. To prevent proliferation and spread of micro-organisms from the canal into the surrounding tissues. . To seal the canal from coronal lea!age. ". To encompass an# residual bacteria.

Material used
1. $ealers. 2. %utta percha &non-metallic or rubber' point or cone. . $ilver &metallic' point or cone.

%utta-percha is the most commonl# used root canal filling material but does not adhere to dentine. (arm gutta-percha ma# contract a)a# from the root canal )alls, leaving a potential space into )hich fluids ma# percolate. There is therefore a need to use a sealant material that bridges the gap bet)een the filling and the )alls of the canal and fills an# potential spaces into )hich micro-organisms ma# proliferate. 1. 2. . ". ,. -. * sealer ma# fulfill an# one or more of the follo)ing functions: *cts as a luting agent &cementing the filling material into canal'. +ills an# discrepanc# bet)een the canal )alls and core material +ills an# discrepanc# bet)een gutta-percha points *cts as a lubricant during filling point insertion. *cts as a bactericidal agent. +ills an# lateral canals.

Requirements of Ideal Sealer: * sealer should have the follo)ing properties: 1. .e capable of achieving a thin film.
