Background:The present study was conducted to compare MTA with Biodentine as a restorative material. Materials & Methods: The present in vitro study was conducted in the department of Pedodontics. 30 ring molds of stainless steel having inner diameter of 2 cm and a height of 1.5 cm were manufactured. Mixing of MTA (Group I) and Biodentine (Group II) was done according to manufacturer's directions. In both groups, solubility and pH was assessed. Results: The mean solubility value of MTA in group I at 1 day was 1.65, at 3 days was 1.68, at 10 days was 2.10, at 30 days was 2.50 and at 60 days was 2.63. The mean solubility value of biodentine in group II at 1 day was 1.99, at 3 days was 2.14, at 10 days was 2.84, at 30 days was 3.64 and at 60 days was 5.40. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). In group I, pH at 2 hours was 9.24, at 6 hours was 9.24, at 24 hours was 9.28, at 7 days was 8.82 and at 28 days was 7.65. In group II, it was 8.97 at 2 hours, 9.34 at 6 hours, at 24 hours was 9.60, at 7 days was 8.21 and at 28 days was 7.75. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).Conclusion: Biodentine exhibited higher solubility and pH as compared to MTA at different interval of time.
