Difference Between Stannous Fluoride and Sodium Fluoride

Man squeezes Crest 3DWhite Brilliance Toothpaste onto his toothbrush. Difference Between Stannous and Sodium Fluoride? What is the Polyfluorite System™? Does Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste Contain More Fluoride?  

What's the difference between stannous fluoride and sodium fluoride? 

Stannous fluoride is an anti-bacterial agent that's clinically proven to protect against gingivitisplaque and tooth sensitivity, while still providing the trusted cavity protection you expect from Crest. Although sodium fluoride protects against cavities, it doesn't provide protection from these other conditions. Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste is the only brand that offers such a wide range of benefits in just one tube! Crest Pro-Health toothpaste with stabilized stannous fluoride provides protection against cavities, gingivitis, plaque, sensitive teeth, tartar buildup and it freshens breath. And it whitens your teeth, too.

What is the Polyfluorite System™?

The Polyfluorite System™ found only in Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste combines two powerful ingredients: therapeutic stannous fluoride to protect against plaque, gingivitis, cavities and tooth sensitivity; and sodium hexametaphosphate, which is a stain- and tartar-fighting ingredient. Together they deliver a unique, comprehensive protection for your teeth like never before.

Does Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste contain more fluoride than other Crest versions?

While Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste contains 0.454% stannous fluoride, it's formulated to deliver the same concentration of fluoride ions (1100 ppm F-) as the 0.243% sodium fluoride in other Crest products.
