Tin Fluorides (Floran)

Inorganic fluorides of tin. They include both stannic fluoride (tin tetrafluoride) and stannous fluoride (tin difluoride). The latter is used in the prevention of dental caries.

07/01/1985 - "To determine the effect on periodontal health of a daily self-administered irrigation with 0.02% stannous fluoride (SnF2) solution, 28 subjects who had moderate to advanced periodontitis were randomly divided into 3 groups: a control group (n = 9) which used no irrigation, a group (n = 8) which used a self-administered water irrigation device (Water Pik) daily with water (H2O group) and a group (n = 11) which used the Water Pik in a similar manner but with SnF2 solution (SnF2 group). "

01/01/2005 - "One minute brushing with a 0.454% stannous fluoride dentifrice did--after four weeks--not affect the subgingival microbial profiles in patients with moderate periodontitis and treated moderate to advanced periodontitis. "
01/01/1989 - "Twelve patients with moderate to advanced periodontitis were selected, and one pocket of a minimum 5-mm probe depth in each quadrant received one of the following treatments: (a) one session of scaling and root planing at the beginning of the experiment, (b) stannous fluoride irrigation, (c) metronidazole irrigation, and (d) saline irrigation. "
01/01/1989 - "Within the limits of a well designed periodontal treatment the most appropriate and useful techniques are, at present, the following: subgingival irrigations with chlorhexidine (irrigating devices) by the patient himself, subgingival irrigations (syringes) with chlorhexidine or stannous fluoride by the practitioner during curettage, in the near future, slow releasing devices with frequent controls of the bacterial flora (darkfield microscopy) for cases of rapidly progressive periodontitis."
