Abstract

Aim: To assess the treatment results up to 1 year after endodontic treatment of apical periodontitis using a silicone-based sealer in comparison with Grossman's sealer, and to compare the results at 3 months after treatment with the 12-month follow-up to assess the prognostic value of a 3-month control. Methodology: A total of 199 teeth were treated at three centres. The sealer was randomly chosen at the time of filling. Treatment results were evaluated clinically and radiographically 3 and 12 months after root-canal filling. The periapical status was evaluated using the periapical index (PAI). Results and conclusions: Average PAI scores decreased from 3.43 at start to 2.21 at 12 months for Grossman's sealer and from 3.40 to 2.26 for the silicon-based material. No significant difference between the groups at start or any of the follow ups was seen. The 3-month control was adequate in establishing significant healing in both groups. The improvement of the periapical condition continued at the 12-month examination.
