An experimental study on the effect of topical application of stannous fluoride to the stripped enamel surface

  • 1Department of Orthodontics, Graduate School, Seoul National University, Korea.


In this study, sections of twenty eight teeth were used to investigate the effect of topical application of 8% stannous fluoride on the decalcification rate of enamel surfaces stripped in a manner suggested for orthodontic purpose. The enamel treated with a single application of a fluoride had a significantly lower tile rate of decalcification for the first 96 hours to lactate buffer solution. After double application of fluoride, decalcification rate decreased signicantly. This study suggested that the continuing protection of stripped surfaces should be sought by regularly scheduled treatment of the enamel with the topical application of fluoride and regular use of a fluoride containing dentifrice.
