Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste

Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste is used to help prevent tooth decay in adolescents aged 16 years and older, and adults, particularly amongst patients at risk from multiple caries. Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste contains fluoride as sodium salt, which belongs to a group of medicines called caries preventing agents.

The market is starting to see an increase in interest for Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste, with people opting for a more natural option. Some will have less fluoride and others will have none at all.

In terms of preventing tooth decay, Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste will not be effective. The only benefit you’ll notice from using a toothpaste that doesn’t contain fluoride is a fresher mouth.

The benefit you have using a toothpaste with fluoride is that the fluoride will help reduce the demineralization process, the first stage of tooth decay. Also if you have demineralization but not yet a full blown cavity, the fluoride can go into the demineralized area and help it re-mineralize.

The majority of dentists will recommend toothpaste containing fluoride and not fluoride free toothpaste.

Colgate Duraphat 2800 Toothpaste

High Fluoride Toothpaste is a relatively new innovation that is available in two strengths, Colgate Duraphat 2800 Toothpaste and Colgate Duraphat 5000ppm Fluoride Toothpaste. These two strengths are typically used in patients who are displaying high levels of tooth decay, or are at high risk of dental caries.

As part of a programme to help control active caries, a Colgate Duraphat 2800 Toothpaste may be prescribed for up to three months. If used correctly, i.e. followed the manufacturers and prescribers advice, there should be no adverse effects when using a Colgate Duraphat 2800 Toothpaste.

Colgate Duraphat 2800 Ppm Toothpaste

If you’ve been using toothpaste without fluoride for a long time, you may begin to notice tooth decay, it’s not inevitable however. If caught early, dental caries can be reversed. If you switch to Colgate Duraphat 2800 Ppm Toothpaste it’s just one of the possible measures to counter, prevent and control the caries process in high risk individuals.

If you are switching from a toothpaste without fluoride to one with fluoride (Colgate Duraphat 2800 Ppm Toothpaste), there are a couple of things you need to know:

  • Do not use Colgate Duraphat 2800 Ppm Toothpaste if you are allergic to sodium fluoride or any of the other ingredients of this medication, listed in section six.
  • Do not use this medicine if you are an adolescent or child aged under 16 years.
  • In order to prevent build-up of fluoride during the use of Colgate Duraphat 2800 Ppm Toothpaste, any other form of Fluoride should be avoided, including tablets, drops, chewing gum, gels or varnishes, as well as fluoridated water or salt.

Fluoride

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in water in varying amounts.

It can help prevent tooth decay, which is why it’s added to many brands of toothpaste and, in some areas, to the water supply through a process called fluoridation.

Tooth decay

Tooth decay, also known as dental decay or dental caries, is a major health concern worldwide and is still a big problem in the UK. Despite being preventable, it’s one of the most common reasons for hospital admission in children.

Tooth decay is the destruction of tooth tissue caused by acids made by bacteria in dental plaque. Dental plaque is a sticky film that constantly forms on the teeth. Each time you have sugary food and drink, the bacteria in plaque produce acid that attacks teeth.

If you eat or drink sugary foods frequently throughout the day, you have more “acid attacks”, which can lead to tooth decay. This can eventually lead to cavities (holes) in the teeth and infection, which is why teeth sometimes need to be removed.

Read more about the causes of tooth decay.

Fluoride toothpaste

Brushing your teeth thoroughly with fluoride toothpaste is one of the most effective ways of preventing tooth decay.

A range of toothpastes are available containing different levels of fluoride. The amount of fluoride in the toothpaste can be found on the side of the tube and is measured in parts per million (ppm).

Toothpastes containing 1,350 to 1,500ppm fluoride are the most effective. Your dentist may advise you to use higher-strength toothpaste if you or your child is at particular risk of tooth decay.

Dose

Children under 3 years old should brush twice daily, with a smear of toothpaste containing at least 1,000ppm fluoride.
Children between 3 and 6 years old should brush at least twice daily with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste containing more than 1,000ppm fluoride.
Adults should brush at least twice daily with a toothpaste containing 1,350-1,500ppm fluoride.
Don’t use mouthwash at the same time as brushing. Use it at an alternative time, because it washes away the fluoride in the toothpaste

Fluoride mouth rinses

Fluoride mouth rinses can be prescribed for adults and children aged 8 and above who have tooth decay. They should be used every day, in addition to brushing twice daily with toothpaste containing at least 1,350ppm fluoride.

Rinses should be used at different times to brushing to avoid washing the toothpaste off your teeth, as this reduces the beneficial effects of the fluoride in the toothpaste.

Community water fluoridation

Most water supplies contain some fluoride and in the early 20th century, levels of tooth decay were found to be associated with fluoride levels in drinking water.

Is fluoride safe?

There have been some concerns that fluoride may be linked to a variety of health conditions. Reviews of the risks have so far found no convincing evidence to support these concerns.

However, a condition called dental fluorosis can sometimes occur if a child’s teeth are exposed to too much fluoride when they’re developing. Read more about looking after children’s teeth and looking after your baby’s teeth.

Mild dental fluorosis can be seen as very fine pearly white lines or flecking on the surface of the teeth. Severe fluorosis can cause the tooth’s enamel to become pitted or discoloured.

Side Effects

Like all medicines, Duraphat Toothpaste can cause side
effects, although not everybody gets them.
In some rare cases (i.e. less than 1 in 1000 people treated)
allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions can occur e.g. rash,
itching swelling and redness.
Burning oral sensation has also been reported
