The main hypothesis of the study as rejected as exposure to CHX affected sealers’ properties. CHX in contact
with sealer surfaces improved the antibacterial properties of the sealer leachates and reduced cell viability for all sealer leachates, except for freshly mixed PCS. Among the tested sealers, BioRoot RCS leachates presented the highest antibacterial properties and cell viability with and without CHX contact.
