AIM To measure the desensitizing benefits of an experimental stannous-containing sodium fluoride dentifrice versus a regular sodium fluoride negative control. METHODS AND MATERIALS This study was a randomized, double-blind, parallel group, four-week clinical trial. Subjects reporting dentinal hypersensitivity were enrolled and randomized to the experimental dentifrice or the control dentifrice to use twice daily for four weeks. Efficacy assessments (Air Blast) were performed at baseline and… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The desensitizing efficacy of a novel stannous-containing sodium fluoride dentifrice: an 8-week randomized and controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
Both the experimental stannous-containing and positive control dentifrices provided significant reductions in both tactile and thermal dentin hypersensitivity compared to baseline at both Weeks 4 and 8.
Comparison of clinical efficacy of three toothpastes in reducing dentin hypersensitivity.
TLDR
The test toothpaste, when used for a single topical application and twice-daily brushing for seven days, does not provide statistically significant relief of dentin hypersensitivity compared to a negative control toothpaste containing 1100 ppm fluoride as NaF in a silica base.
A randomized, controlled, two-month pilot trial of stannous fluoride dentifrice versus sodium fluoride dentifrice after oxalate treatment for dentinal hypersensitivity
TLDR
In subjects treated with oxalates for dentinal hypersensitivity, both stannous fluoride and sodium fluoride dentifrices are well tolerated, are feasible for routine use, and do not detract from the desensitizing effects of an in-office and at-home oxalate combination treatment regimen.
Comparative evaluation of the efficacy of three commercially available toothpastes on dentin hypersensitivity reduction: an eight-week clinical study.
TLDR
Colgate Sensitive Pro-ReliefToothpaste, used twice daily, significantly reduces dentin hypersensitivity, and is significantly more effective in reducing dent in hypersensitivity than Sensodyne Rapid Relief Toothpaste and Crest Cavity Protection Toothpaste.
Randomized in vivo trial evaluating plaque inhibition benefits of an advanced stannous-containing sodium fluoride dentifrice used in conjunction with power brush technology
TLDR
A population of O/R power toothbrush users had significantly less plaque coverage for all three measurements when using a stannous-containing NaF dentifrice than when usingA negative control (fluoride) dentif Rice.
[Desensitizing effect of stannous fluoride-containing toothpaste for patients with dentine hypersensitivity: a Meta-analysis].
TLDR
Current evidence shows that stannous fluoride-containing toothpaste is effective in treating dentine hypersensitivity in clinic, but due to limited sample size and lower quality of the included studies, more high quality and large-sample RCT are needed to further verify the evidence.
Management of dentine hypersensitivity: efficacy of professionally and self-administered agents.
TLDR
Treatments including stannous fluoride, arginine, calcium sodium phosphosilicate and strontium toothpaste appear to be clinically effective for the treatment of dentine hypersensitivity compared to comparators and controls.
Desensitizing toothpaste versus placebo for dentin hypersensitivity: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is reported that there is sufficient evidence to support the use of potassium-, stannous fluoride-, potassium and stannus fluoride-, calcium sodium phosphosilicate-, and arginine-containing desensitizing toothpastes for dentin hypersensitivity, but not the useof strontium-containingDesensitization toothpaste.

TLDR
After 4- and 8-weeks' use of their assigned products, participants in the new dentifrice group demonstrated statistically significant improvements in tactile and air blast sensitivity, as compared to those using the positive and negative control dentifrices.
Desensitizing effect of a stabilized stannous fluoride/Sodium hexametaphosphate dentifrice.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the stabilized stannous fluoride/sodium hexametaphosphate dentif rice provides clinically and statistically significant reductions in dentinal hypersensitivity when compared to the sodium fluoride control dentifrice.
A new desensitizing dentifrice--an 8-week clinical investigation.
TLDR
The new dentifrice group demonstrated statistically significant improvements in tactile and thermal sensitivity over the two control groups, and was randomly assigned to each group with instructions to brush twice daily.
A randomized clinical study to assess the extrinsic staining profiles of stannous- and triclosan-containing dentifrices.
TLDR
Lobene stain composite mean scores were significantly lower in the two experimental stannous-containing dentifrice groups and the Colgate Total group when compared to Crest Gum Care, and all dentifrices were well-tolerated.
Comparative investigation of the desensitizing efficacy of a new dentifrice: a 14-day clinical study.
TLDR
It was concluded that a new dentif rice formulation containing 5.0% potassium nitrate and 0.454% stannous fluoride in a silica base provided a statistically significant reduction in dentinal hypersensitivity after only 10 days, as compared to a commercially available nondesensitizing control dentifrice.
The anti-plaque efficacy of a novel stannous-containing sodium fluoride dentifrice: a randomized and controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
Both the experimental and positive control dentifrices provided significantly lower mean whole mouth TMQHPI plaque scores after treatment compared to the negative control: 11.4% lower for the experimental stannous-containing dentifrice and 8.
Desensitizing efficacy of a new dentifrice containing 5.0% potassium nitrate and 0.454% stannous fluoride.
TLDR
The results of this examiner-blind clinical study support the conclusion that Colgate Sensitive Maximum Strength dentifrice provided superior levels of control of tactile and air blast sensitivity than did the clinically tested, commercially-available Sensodyne anti-hypersensitivity dentif Rice.
The effect of stannous fluoride on dentinal hypersensitivity.
TLDR
It was concluded that an effective strategy involving the use of stannous fluoride gel includes the application of the 0.717 per cent F solution in the office, effectively providing immediate relief, and that this solution requires approximately two to four weeks of continuous treatment to be effective.
