Does your fluoride protect your clients’ enamel?
Dental erosion has reached epidemic levels

  • Recent research has shown that approximately 30% of dental clients aged 18–35 years had at least one tooth with advanced erosive tooth wear

Why stannous flouride matters when it come to enamel erosion
Stannous fluoride protects the tooth surface from enamel erosion caused by dietary acids in the low pH range, a risk that’s rapidly increasing for all your clients.

Is there any evidence to show that not all fluorides are the same?

How can stannous fluoride technology repair enamel inside and out?

What is the difference between stannous fluoride and sodium fluoride?

  • Compared to sodium fluoride, stannous fluoride provides enamel erosion protection
  • When your client’s pH lowers during an acid challenge from food or drinks, fluoride’s effectiveness to strengthen enamel is reduced. Stannous from stannous fluoride forms an acid resistant micro-thin layer to protect enamel from acid erosion.

Why else does stannous matter?

  • Compared to sodium fluoride, stabilized stannous fluoride also provides greater calcium loss protection
