Abstract:

Aqueous stannous fluoride solutions were added to silex, and the ability of the resulting prophylaxis pastes to prevent in vitro enamel decalcification was tested. Both the 10 and the 20 stannous fluoride solutions were significantly more effective than the 5 and the 1 preparations. In experiments with 10 aqueous stannous fluoride added to silex and to flour pumice as abrasives, protection ranged from 64.3 to 76.6. In experiments ranging from 4 to 22 weeks in length, no deleterious effects of age were found. Author
