A plethora of restorative and endodontic materials have been suggested over the years for root-end filling such as amalgam, glass ionomer cement, zinc oxide eugenol cement, Gutta-percha, composite resin.
Their bonding to tooth structure, metallic and ceramic restorations is quite firm which reduces micro leakage.10,11 Newer materials are Glass ionomer cement, Zinc poly carboxy- late cement, modified Zinc Oxide Eugenol cement, Resin modified Glass Ionomer cement and composites.12,13,14
