Background and Aim: Solubility of endodontic sealers should not exceed 3wt% in 24 hours. High solubility of sealers leads to gap formation and leakage through the canal wall and root filling material interface. This study aimed to compare the solubility of Endoseal and AH26 endodontic sealers.
Materials and Methods: In this in vitro, experimental study, 10 specimens with the same dimensions were fabricated from Endoseal and AH26 sealers (n=5 from each). After complete setting and initial weighing, each specimen was placed in a separate container containing 50 cc of distilled water and incubated at 37°C. The weight loss of specimens was calculated using a digital scale after 1, 3, 7, and 30 days of immersion. Data were analyzed by SPSS version 23 using t-test and repeated measures ANOVA (alpha=0.05). 
Results: The overall mean weight of the two groups at different time points was not significantly different (P=0.453). Nevertheless, a significant weight change was observed in both the AH26 and Endoseal groups over time (P=0.0001). The solubility of AH26 increased while the solubility of Endoseal decreased with time (P=0.0001).
Conclusion: The solubility of both sealers was within the acceptable range according to the ANSI/ADA in the first 24 hours after setting. Both sealers experienced significant weight change over time, which was ascending in AH26 and descending in Endoseal.
