Aim: This research aimed to test the actual temperature inside the root canal while the obturation phase was ongoing. Specifically, the obturation was done by the proposed heat-based technique with bioselaers.
Materials and Methods: This study tested the temperature evaluation. In the experiment, two premolars were utilised, and thermocouples of K-type one for each tooth were used. The Bonferroni method was conducted to compare the data collected from temperature.
Results: The experiment results showed that using the new obturation method, the heat did not reach the apical third.
Conclusions: Using the proposed modified hot obturation procedure, the temperature will not change the apical area. Consequently, this technique eludes inducing the fast setting for the biosealer.
