The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial properties of three endodontic sealers (AH 26, Ketac-Endo and Apexit) using Direct Contact Test (DCT) and Agar Diffusion Test (ADT). DCT is based on measuring the effect of close contact between test bacteria and tested material, while ADT measures the areas of bacterial growth inhibition and consequently the incidence of microbial resistence of bacteria.
The results of DCT showed that all tested materials, apart from Apexit, have antibacterial activity. The diameters of the bacterial growth inhibition zones in ADT demonstrated by Ketac-Endo (x=12.26 ± 1.76 mm), AH 26 (x=5.67 ± 0.66 mm) and Apexit (x=0.80 ± 0.29 mm).
