Sodium Fluoride USP

A common ingredient in toothpaste and is used to strengthen enamel and prevent cavities. The fluoride salt enhances the strength of teeth by the formation of fluorapatite, a naturally occurring component of tooth enamel. This makes sodium fluoride one of the preferred active ingredient to prevent cavities.

Stannous Fluoride USP

A common ingredient in toothpaste and is used to strengthen enamel and prevent cavities. Unlike Sodium Fluoride, Stannous Fluoride also offers antibacterial properties that fight plaque and gingivitis.

Potassium Nitrate USP / EP

An ingredient used in toothpaste made for sensitive teeth.
Potassium nitrate has met the requirement of desensitizing tooth pain. It is thought to act directly on the pulpal sensory nerves. When cold or air causes tooth pain, the potassium actually calms the nerves, preventing the transmission of pain . After an initial depolarization of sensory nerve fiber membranes, excess potassium halts repolarization. Thus, the ability of potassium nitrate to quell dentinal hypersensitivity may be due to an irreversible depolarization. Several brands of toothpastes are available with potassium nitrate.
