Stannous fluoride formulation
Stannous fluoride formulation accelerates occlusion of exposed dentine tubules
The unique formulation – with a balance of active stannous fluoride and bio-adhesive polymer – accelerates occlusion of dentine tubules by:1
- Providing improved bio-adhesion*3
- Forming a gel-like scaffold to hold the stannous in place1
*vs. toothpaste containing 0.454% stannous fluoride and lower polymer level
The Sensodyne Rapid Relief stannous fluoride formulation occludes exposed dentine tubules, helping prevent the movement of fluid1,3–5

Clinically proven fast relief 6–8
- The non-aqueous formulation ensures stannous fluoride becomes active when in contact with saliva
- The facilitating polymer becomes adhesive in saliva, sticking to dentine and helping to trap stannous ions
Sensodyne Rapid Relief has a unique formulation of stannous fluoride with facilitating bio-adhesive polymer, and has been shown to reduce fluid flow through dentine tubules by 127% compared with a regular stannous fluoride toothpaste after one application in vitro.*1

Although the active ingredients are the same, the way the toothpastes are formulated affects the way they work.1 A four-day hydraulic conductance study measuring the fluid flow rates through dentine tubules of two toothpaste formulations. Fluid flow rates were measured after the initial treatment and on Days 1–4. The Pashley hydraulic conductance model and Earles’ solution passed through dentine tubules when a simulation of pulpal pressure was used
Sensodyne Rapid Relief with stannous fluoride and bio-adhesive polymer is clinically proven to relieve sensitivity from the first brush.6
Chart adapted from GSK data on file 2072116Two additional studies have been conducted: GSK data on file 205710 showing 7% reduction in Schiff score from baseline after first brush, and GSK data on file 205697 showing 18% reduction in Schiff score from baseline after first brush6
Sensodyne Rapid Relief with stannous fluoride and bio-adhesive polymer is clinically proven to relieve sensitivity in just 60 seconds.8
