Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to investigate the influence of amine fluoride (AmF)/stannous fluoride (SnF2) containing toothpaste and mouthrinse on plaque accumulation and gingival health of young adults after 4 weeks use. SUBJECT AND METHODS: Forty-two young adults (mean age: 28.33 ± 7.19 years) were examined for the Plaque Index (PI; Silness and Löe, 1964) and Gingival Index (GI; Löe and Silness, 1963) scores, and divided randomly into two groups. Both groups used AmF/SnF2 containing toothpaste twice a day for 3 min toothbrushing, and one group after toothbrushing rinsed with AmF/SnF2 containing mouthrinse for 30 s. After 4 weeks the probands were re-examined. RESULTS: Statistically significant decrease in dental plaque (PI) and gingival (GI) index values were found at the end of the study. The reduction of PI and GI values was significant in all groups but it was higher in the combined (toothpaste + mouthrinsing) group, than using toothpaste only. CONCLUSION: The regular combined use of AmF/SnF2 toothpaste and mouthrinse was more effective in the reduction of plaque accumulation and maintenance of gingival health than the toothpaste alone.
