Abstract:

The in vitro effectiveness of an aqueous stannous fluoride approximately 20 prophylaxis paste was determined by measuring the amount of P removed from enamel surfaces both before and after treatment with the paste. Treatment reduced enamel solubility by over 90 in all experimental groups, and there was no loss of effectiveness when the paste was aged over an 8-wk period. The substitution of liquid petrolatum, or silicone and petrolatum in combination, for water did not increase effectiveness. Author
