Background: One of the unfavorable outcomes of endodontic treatment in primary molars is furcal perforation. During treatment, bacterial infection at the site of perforation should be prevented for better prognosis. Aim: This article compares the Sealing Ability of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate, Biodentine, and Cention N Cement in the Repair of Furcation Perforations. Methods: Sixty freshly extracted, caries free permanent mandibular molars with non-fused, well developed roots were selected for this study. Perforations created in the pulpal floors of 36 extracted molars were repaired with Mineral Trioxide Aggregate, Biodentine and Cention N. After that pulp chambers and access openings were filled with composite resin, the teeth were then immersed in 2% Methylene blue dye for 48 hrs. After longitudinal sectioning of the teeth in bucco-lingual direction, dye penetration was measured using stereomicroscope. Results: Biodentine and MTA showed no statistically significant difference in their sealing ability. CN showed better sealing ability compared to Biodentine and MTA. Conclusion: All materials used for sealing of the furcal perforation showed some microleakage. Cention N showed better sealing ability than MTA and Biodentine.
