5% Sodium Fluoride Varnish

Like other fluoride products for oral hygiene, 5% sodium fluoride varnish is used to prevent cavities and treat hypersensitivity. Exposed dentin or exposed root surfaces can cause temperature sensitivity. Fluoride treatment varnish is highly concentrated and adheres to teeth on contact with saliva. This allows for the extended release of fluoride for up to 4 hours. Some formulas are clear while others are white. 5% sodium fluoride varnish is sold in individual doses. Flavor options include mint, bubblegum, strawberry, watermelon, and grape.

Crosstex, Medicom, and Sultan Healthcare are companies that make 5% sodium fluoride varnish.
