    Colgate Duraphat fluoride toothpaste is a prescription-only toothpaste for the prevention of dental caries in adults. It is prescribed particularly to patients with a high risk from caries. Colgate Duraphat contains fluoride as a sodium salt. It belongs to a group of medicines known as caries preventing agents.

    Sodium fluoride, when applied topically after tooth eruption reduces caries by inhibiting demineralization and promoting remineralization of the surface of the tooth. Fluoride is effective on both the tooth enamel and exposed dentine.

    There is a clinically-proven relationship, which is dose-dependent, between the fluoride level in a daily toothpaste and the degree of clinical anti-caries efficacy.

    The longer the duration of topical fluoride application, the greater the anti-caries benefits. Clinical studies have shown the efficacy of Colgate Duraphat for at home use.

    The main benefit of using Colgate Duraphat is the protection it provides against the occurrence of dental caries in adults over the age of 18. It effectively prevents formation caries when used on a regular basis.

    Duraphat Toothpaste is to be used by persons who are aged 18 and above. Use Colgate Duraphat according to the instructions of your dentist or doctor. If you have doubts about the proper use of this product, ask your dentist.

    Use Colgate Duraphat 3 times a day for brushing your teeth, doing the following steps:

    • Apply a 2 cm toothpaste ribbon onto your toothbrush each time you brush your teeth. Two cm ribbon of toothpaste is equivalent to between 3 mg and 5 mg of fluoride.
    • Brush your teeth after every meal.
    • Brush your teeth vertically from your gum to the tip of your teeth.
    • If there is excess foam, spit it out. Do not swallow.

    Brush your teeth for approximately 3 minutes.

    if you forget to use Colgate Duraphat, use as soon as you remember. Do not use a double dose to make up for the missed dose. Continue your usual treatment after the next meal.
