What is Colgate Duraphat for?

Colgate Duraphat toothpaste contains sodium fluoride and is a popular toothpaste commonly prescribed to patients who are suffering from tooth decay.

The toothpaste can help those suffering from both past and present tooth decay. It is also prescribed to patients where there are problems such as a history of dental caries, dry mouth, exposed root surfaces, high sugar diets and where orthodontic appliances have been used.

The optimal time to apply the toothpaste is when tooth decay is in its infancy. Often, dentists prescribe Colgate Duraphat 2800 or 5000 to help reverse the effects of early stages of rot.

The severity of your problems or need for protection, as well as your age, (Duraphat 5000 should not be used by those under the age of 16) may determine which toothpaste is suitable.

The 2800ppm of fluoride is approximately double the amount of fluoride in the strongest of regular toothpastes found in the dental section of any supermarket, whilst 5000ppm of fluoride is around four times as much fluoride as that contained in the stronger toothpastes.

In addition, the toothpaste also promotes remineralisation using the saliva’s calcium, phosphate and fluoride. This boosts protection and increases resistance to plaque acid deposits, strengthens the teeth and reduces the damage caused by dental caries.

How does Colgate Duraphat Work?

The fluoride contained in Colgate Duraphat toothpaste can simultaneously help to reverse early stage tooth decay and strengthen teeth to prevent decay.

The fluoride works at:

• Reducing the formation of plaque acids.
• Preventing mineral loss associated with plaque acid.
• Promoting remineralisation of early tooth decay.

How to use Colgate Duraphat

• Replace your regular toothpaste with Colgate Duraphat 2800 or 5000.
• Apply it three times daily. Once when you wake up or after breakfast. Once during the day. Finally, use the toothpaste before you go to sleep.
• Use approximately 3 to 5 milligrams of the toothpaste on your toothbrush each time you use it.
• Brush your teeth in an up and down motion or use your regular electric toothbrush.
• Spew out the excess lather. DO NOT swallow the toothpaste.
• The toothpaste is only prescribed to those aged 16 or older.
