Apical extrusion of obturating material was compared in patent apical foramina and a presence of a dentin plug by using three different obturation techniques- lateral condensation, thermafil and successfil. It was found that apical extrusion group with a dentin plug was significantly less compared to the group with patent foramina. Of the three techniques, lateral condensation technique produced the least amount of extrusion.
