Stannous fluoride formulation

Stannous fluoride formulation accelerates occlusion of exposed dentine tubules

The unique formulation – with a balance of active stannous fluoride and bio-adhesive polymer – accelerates occlusion of dentine tubules by:1

  • Providing improved bio-adhesion*3
  • Forming a gel-like scaffold to hold the stannous in place1

*vs. toothpaste containing 0.454% stannous fluoride and lower polymer level
