AH Plus is one of the most commonly used epoxy resin-based sealers, due to its favorable properties. Trends in endodontics have shifted towards bio-ceramic materials; newer modification of MTA includes its use as a root canal sealer. The objective of present study comparatively evaluated the apical sealing ability of a new MTA based sealer, MTA Fillapex and a most commonly used resin sealer, AH Plus sealer. Statistical analysis of the results demonstrated significantly less dye leakage for AH Plus compared to MTA Fillapex. Mean value for MTA Fillapex group was 1.375 mm and for AH Plus group was 0.755 mm, which was statistically significant. Apical sealing ability of AH Plus was comparatively better than that of MTA Fillapex
