Colgate Duraphat 2800 Toothpaste is a prescription only treatment that delivers better cavity protection than a conventional toothpaste.
It contains 2800ppm of fluoride which is approximately double the amount of fluoride in the strongest normal toothpastes. A high fluoride toothpaste prevents the formation of dental plaque that can make harmful acid that causes decay, but they can also help to repair damaged enamel before it's too late. In the early stages of enamel demineralisation, use of Duraphat can help re-mineralise the eroded area.
