Colgate Duraphat 5000 Toothpaste contains 5000ppm of fluoride which is approximately four times as much as that found in the better toothpastes available in the dental section at your local supermarket.
Duraphat is a prescription only treatment that provides enhanced protection against the formation of dental plaque. This means better protection and lower exposure of enamel to plaque acid. As well as this, Duraphat can actually help to reverse enamel demineralisation and repair any parts of the enamel that are partly damaged.
Benefits of using Duraphat
Duraphat 5000 toothpaste can be used by adults and children over 16 years with active signs of enamel demineralisation. It should also be considered by patients with:
- Active tooth decay or a history of tooth decay
- Exposed root surfaces
- High sugar diets
- Orthodontic appliances
- Dry mouth
Using Duraphat to brush twice a day (minimum), eating less sugar and using brushes in-between the teeth or floss will all help to reduce plaque and plaque acid related damage to tooth enamel.
