Q:

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

A:

Stannous fluoride is an anti-bacterial agent that's clinically proven to protect against gingivitis, plaque 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.
