Aims and Objectives: Root canal preparation and obturation are of great importance in endodontics. Its purpose is to eliminate pulpal and periradicular disease. The aim of this study was to compare coronal bacterial microleakage in prepared root canals using Neoniti A1 and Reciproc files that obturated with lateral compaction, single cone gutta-percha, and hybrid (tapered cone/lateral compaction) methods. Materials and Methods: In this ex vivo study, a total of 110 single-rooted mandibular first premolars were choose and randomly divided into two study groups A and B (each 45) that one group was prepared with Reciproc and another with Neoniti A1 and negative and positive control groups (each 10). Each group divided into three subgroups of 15 each and obturated using a single cone, lateral compaction, and hybrid (tapered cone/lateral compaction) techniques. For evaluation of coronal leakage, “two-chamber setup” was used. The solution of enterococcus faecalis culture was injected in the upper chamber and incubated. If the bacteria pass through the canal and obturation materials, the lower chamber becomes turbid. TSB medium in the lower chamber (apex) were investigated every day in terms of occurrence of turbidity, and the duration of occurrence of leakage was recorded. The data were analyzed using Chi-square test. Results: Data analysis showed that in each group the difference in percentages between subgroups was statistically significant (P = 0.003). So that the highest and the lowest amount of leakage in both groups were related to lateral compaction and hybrid techniques, respectively. Conclusion: Under the conditions of this study, independent of the instrument used for canal preparation, hybrid method and then single-cone technique, however, were more effective in the prevention of coronal leakage than lateral condensation technique.
