What Is Stannous Fluoride Used for in Toothpaste?
One of the main causes of bleeding gums is the buildup of plaque bacteria. If the buildup isn’t removed through regular brushing and flossing, it can irritate the gums, leading to red, swollen, and bleeding gums, also known as gingivitis. Stannous fluoride is an antimicrobial ingredient (chemical compound) that helps inhibit plaque bacteria buildup in the mouth. With twice daily brushing, its antimicrobial activity improves gum health by helping to prevent the plaque bacteria from coming back.
That’s why it’s an active ingredient in parodontax, a toothpaste specially formulated with stannous fluoride, making it 3X more effective at removing plaque than regular toothpastes.* In addition to removing and killing plaque bacteria, it also helps prevent dental cavities, and is clinically proven to help reduce bleeding gums.
