This study compared the original, more concentrated acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) and stannous fluoride (SnG) regimens and one of the commercial products with respect to the stability of the fluoride deposited from the treatments in vitro. Specimens of human enamel were treated with two-step sequential applications or mixtures of APF and SnF2 and subsequently were exposed to one of three washing procedures of varying intensity. Data obtained from successive acid-etch biopsies were used to… CONTINUE READING
