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)
