    Is there any difference in using a sodium fluoride gel vs. a stannous
    fluoride in preventing cavities and sensativity, or are they equally
    efficient? Assume both have a similar percentage of flouride. Thanks.

    Which still use stannous fluoride? I remember it was the original
    formulation of Crest, with "Floristan". I believe sodium fluoride may
    be more stable and have a longer shelf life.
    But I believe you're right--it is the abrasive used that determines the
    best form of fluoride.
