Abstract:

During the acceptance testing of the 0.1 stannous fluoride mouthwash the subjects related that use of the mouthwash seemed to make their teeth cleaner. This study was conducted to determine the effect of a 0.1 stannous fluoride mouthwash on plaque accumulation on human dentition. Fifteen subjects completed the study which lasted 22 weeks. Each subject used a placebo mouthwash for 11 weeks and a 0.1 stannous fluoride mouthwash for 11 weeks. The subjects were scored for plaque buildup three times, initially and after each of the 11-week periods. Author
