Abstract : The materials listed in the report were developed in the Experimental Dentistry Branch, USAF School of Aerospace Medicine, in response to specific USAF requirements in preventive dentistry. This review outlines procedures for the preparation and use of these compounds and, when applicable, provides directions for obtaining the fully prepared material. The USAF Dental Service endorsement of the SAM series of topical SnF2 agents is based upon in vitro studies demonstrating the ability of these preparations to protect dental enamel from acid decalcification. It has been shown that: (a) stannous fluoride solutions of low concentration provide excellent protection, and (b) stannous fluoride should be frequently applied to provide maximal benefit.
