Background: The present study was conducted to assess the effect of 5% Ca(OCl)2 and 5% NaOCl solutions on the modulus of elasticity of root dentin.
Materials & Methods: 72 intact non carious mandibular premolars were divided into 3 groups. Group I teeth were stored in normal saline, and groups II in 5% Ca(OCl)2 and group III into 5% NaOCl solutions. Modulus of elasticity was measured
Results: The mean modulus of elasticity in group I was 0.38, in group II was 0.32 and in group III was 0.27. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: The modulus of elasticity was comparatively lower with 5% Ca(OCl)2 and 5% NaOCl as compared to normal saline.
