Aim: This in vitro study was conducted with an aim to compare apical leakage between root canals filled with Gutta-percha/AH Plus and Resilon/Epiphany SE Sealer using cold lateral condensation technique. Materials and Methods: Eighty recently extracted human mandibular permanent premolars with straight roots with single canals were used in this study. Out of eighty samples, 40 were randomly divided into 2 experimental groups of 20 teeth each (n = 20). Samples in Group I were obturated with cold lateral condensation technique using Gutta-percha/AH Plus, in Group II were obturated by cold lateral condensation using Resilon/Epiphany SE Sealer. Forty teeth saved as controls positive (n = 20) and 20 negative (n = 20). Results: When comparison of leakage was done between Group I (Gutta-percha/AH Plus-cold lateral condensation) and Group II (Resilon/Epiphany SE Sealer-cold lateral condensation) by Mann–Whitney U-test, P = 0.001, which is statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Gutta-percha exhibited an overall significantly lower percentage of apical dye penetration.
