Background: Epoxy resin-based and bioceramic-based root canal sealers are used in endodontic treatment as root canal obturation materials because they are considered to have many advantages. The complete removal of these materials during root canal retreatment is crucial in order to ensure adequate disinfection. Due to the difficulty in accessing root canal ramifications, removal of these filling materials without damaging the teeth can be successfully achieved using endodontic solvents. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the solubility of two types of root canal sealers in xylene used in endodontics. Methods: A total of 34 epoxy resin and bioceramic samples were stored for 72 h in an incubator to set. The samples were then immersed for 2 min in 1 mL of xylene. The excess xylene on the samples was drained with an absorbent paper and stored in an incubator for 24 h to dry. The pre- and post-immersion weight of the samples was measured using a digital analytical scale, then the weight difference between the groups was analyzed using the independent t test at a 5% significance level. Results: No significant difference was observed between the epoxy resin-based root canal sealer group and the bioceramic-based root canal sealer group (P ≥ 0.05). Conclusion: Xylene endodontic solvent has a similar efficacy for removing epoxy resin-based and bioceramic-based root canal sealers in in vitro study.
