Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste

Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste contains higher levels of fluoride to prevent the process of tooth decay and strengthen your teeth and enamel. Regular toothpaste does not always contain high enough levels of fluoride to protect adults’ teeth, which means that they are at risk of cavities and tooth decay. Tooth decay is sometimes also known as caries, and Duraphat is prescribed to people who are at risk of caries. Every person at any age is at risk of tooth decay if you do not brush your teeth correctly and regularly. This can lead to cosmetic issues, such as yellowing teeth and rot, and also physical pain from toothache. By using Duraphat you can help prevent the spread of decay, even after it has already begun.

Product Description

What is Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste Used To Treat?

If you have root surfaces which are exposed, tooth decay or have previously suffered from tooth decay, have braces or orthodontic appliances, or have a diet which contains high levels of sugar, Colgate Duraphat is a suitable toothpaste for you.


How Does Duraphat Toothpaste Work?

Colgate Duraphat contains an active ingredient called sodium fluoride. This active ingredient belongs to a family of medicines called caries preventive agents. Sodium fluoride protects your teeth against decay by rebuilding the tooth enamel, which is commonly worn away by acids in foods that cling to your teeth. Fluoride can also help to rebuild your enamel where the damage and decay have already taken place. The best way to prevent tooth decay is to keep good dental hygiene.


Tooth Decay Treatment

Fluoride treatment such as higher dose fluoride toothpaste is the first step in treating the early stages of tooth decay. Fluoride can help to reverse any damage done like cavities, and can also help to strengthen and restore your tooth if it is in the early stages of decay. However, if you are in the later stages of tooth decay then fluoride-based toothpaste alone will not be enough to mend your tooth, meaning more extensive treatment will be needed. This extensive treatment can be anything from fillings, crowns, extraction of the tooth, or even a root canal. Fluoride cavity treatment works to protect vulnerable teeth and prevent you from losing a tooth.


How To Use Duraphat Toothpaste

You should use Duraphat like you use any other toothpaste and should brush your teeth around 2-3 times a day for 3 minutes each time. Overusing this toothpaste can result in increased levels of fluoride which can cause damage to your teeth and long-term health.

When brushing your teeth, you should use no more than a 2cm ribbon of toothpaste on your brush. You should never swallow any toothpaste as it can be harmful to your health and can cause diarrhoea, vomiting, and stomach pain. You should contact your doctor or GP if you suffer any of these side effects.


Side Effects

Like any other medicine, Colgate Duraphat comes with the risk of side effects, but not everybody will experience them. Some of the side effects that this medication can cause are more common than others, but if you suffer any side effects which cause concern, you should get in touch with your GP or doctor as soon as possible. Some side effects include:

• Allergic reactions

• Damage to teeth

• Damage to long-term health

• Burning oral sensation

• Convulsions

• Rash

• Swelling

• Itchiness

• Redness


Who is Duraphat Toothpaste Suitable For?

Colgate Duraphat toothpaste is designed to be used by adults and children over the age of 16 years old who are suffering from tooth decay. However, your medical history or medications that you are taking may mean that you are not suitable to take Duraphat. Duraphat also contains high levels of fluoride, which can be damaging to your health if you consume too much of it over a long period. Fluoride can be particularly damaging in children with developing teeth which is why it is not recommended for children under 16.

It is important to speak to your doctor or GP before using Duraphat while you are pregnant or breastfeeding to ensure that the toothpaste is suitable for your situation.
