The comcept tat disease is based on a state of microbial dybiosis when the normal symbiotic relationship is altered can be applied to numerous body locations.
Historically, the use of sodium fluoride (NaF) toothpastes have proven to be highly effective for treatment of dental caries and are an important part of caries risk management systems (CAMBRA). More recently, however, the inclusion of stannous fluoride (SnF2) in toothpaste formulations has been shown to provide multiple oral health benefits in addition to those found in NaF dentifices.
