Introduction: The objective of present study was to evaluate the incidence of post operative pain after single visit endodontic treatment using five different sealers.

Methods: Hundred (100) patients were selected who needed endodontic treatment. Samples were assigned into five group according to use of different sealers. After single visit endodontic treatment, patients were asked to note incidence of pain on VAS scale at different time intervals. i.e. at 24,48 and 72 hours. Results were calculated and subjected to statistical analysis.

Results: Among five sealers used, BioRoot RCS (Septodont, St. Maur-des-Fossés, France: Group 5) showed best results when compared to other groups like MTAFillapex (Angelus Solucões Odontológicas, Londrina, PR, Brazil: Group 4), Sealapex (Sybron Endo, Glendora, CA, USA: Group 3) and Tubliseal (SybronEndo, Orange, CA: Group 2) whereas Zinc oxide eugenol (Control Group) (Deepak Enterprises Mumbai, India: Group 1) demonstrated poorest outcome during all the time intervals of the study.

Conclusion: In single visit endodontics, BioRootRCS (Group 5) sealer showed lowest intensities of pain and Zinc Oxide Eugenol (Group 1) showed highest intensities of pain when compared to all other sealers used for the time duration of the study.
