High Strength Sodium Fluoride

The only high strength fluoride gel with 10% xylitol against caries

Mechanism of action

Calcium is attracted by the receptor sites, forming calcium fluoride. The fluoride ion then combines with the calcium ion to form calcium fluoride, adding to the hydroxyapatite (97 % of enamel and 70 % of dentin) of the tooth, thus making it more resistant to acid dissolution.

Benefits

• Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) free
• Sweetened with 10 % xylitol for a great taste

Indications

• Helps reduce the incidence of cavities
• Stimulates saliva production to relieve dryness of the mouth
