AmF and SnF2 containing toothpastes (equally 750 ppm F-) and mouthrinses (equally 125 ppm F-) from the GABA International Agency were tested. After a five month treatment period (daily two times tooth cleaning), in the saliva of the examined persons the germ counts of the S. mutans and Lactobacillus showed a decreasing tendency, though the change was not statistically significant. The control group used NaF containing cleaners (toothpaste; 1500 ppm F-, mouthrinse; 250 ppm F-) for also a five month treatment period. Within this group the germ counts of the microorganisms of the examined saliva did not change markedly.
