..However, because the current study applied pressure 3 to 6 times higher than physiologically normal, it is likely that the leakage represents a worst-case scenario. ..

..Overall, the silicon-based material (Roeko Seal) was less cytotoxic and more effective in sealing root canals against LPS leakage than other materials. ..
