Microbiologic and electron microscopic techniques were used to observe the effects of SnF2 mouthrinse 100 ppm F- on early plaque formation in vivo. The results of microbiologic determinations indicated that the total number of bacteria and the number of streptococci were greatly decreased. Electron microscopy confirmed the marked reduction of bacterial accumulation. Author
