What is Colgate Duraphat?

Colgate Duraphat is toothpaste used to prevent dental caries (tooth decay) and rot. Its efficacy is proven over a wide range of patients, and it delivers results without disrupting the normal daily routine of the patients. 

How does it work?

The active ingredient prevents build-up of plaque which is responsible for causing dental carries. It also strengthens the enamel making it more resistant to acids. It is available in 2 strengths 2800 ppm (0.619%) and 5000ppm (1.1%). 

Is Colgate Duraphat toothpaste suitable for me?

It is suitable for adults and adolescents aged over 16 years. It may not be suitable if you have the following:

  • Are allergic to sodium fluoride or any other ingredients in the toothpaste
  • Using other  fluoride tablets, gum or chewables

The product images shown may represent the range of products, or be for illustration purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product.

Side Effects

All medications can cause potential side effects, below we have listed some potential side effects, however, these do not always occur. The side effects are not expected with normal use. However, overuse of fluoride can cause fluoride toxicity leading to symptoms, e.g.,

  • Dental fluorosis
  • Itching
  • Swelling and redness

Stop using it if any signs of allergic reactions are noted.

Is Colgate Duraphat safe?

If you have been prescribed Colgate Duraphat 200mg then it is at the discretion of the prescriber.

However, all medications can potentially have adverse effects and should be taken exactly as prescribed. If you experience any side effects when taking Colgate Duraphat 200mg then you should contact a doctor immediately.

Trimethoprim is commonly prescribed to treat urinary tract infections, a prevalent health issue affecting the urinary system. This medication is effective against a range of bacterial infections, notably those affecting the urinary and respiratory tracts. Trimethoprim works by targeting and inhibiting a substance called folic acid, which is crucial for the growth and reproduction of bacteria. By disrupting the production of folic acid, Trimethoprim hinders the development of bacteria, thereby helping to clear infections.

While it's primarily known for its effectiveness in treating urinary tract infections, it's also used for certain types of respiratory tract infections. However, like any medication, the safety of Trimethoprim for an individual depends on various factors including their overall health, other medications they may be taking, and their specific medical history. It's important to consult a healthcare professional to determine if Trimethoprim is a safe and appropriate treatment option.

Are there any foods that should be avoided when taking Colgate Duraphat?

We recommend you read the patient information leaflet for this product thoroughly before taking the treatment. This is essential to understanding any interactions that can occur and to take the medication safely.

Typically, it is recommended to avoid alcohol while taking the medication or other antibiotics, please consult your doctor for more guidance.

Can I buy Colgate Duraphat from Boots?

It is generally possible to purchase medication, including Colgate Duraphat200mg, from UK pharmacies like Boots. However, I recommend checking the Boots website or contacting Boots directly for the most current and accurate information. Remember to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new medication.

Can I buy Colgate Duraphat from Superdrug?

If you would like to buy Colgate Duraphat, you will need to check availability on the Superdrug website.

Can I buy Colgate Duraphat from Amazon?

Generally, the effects of Colgate Duraphat may be noticeable within the time frame outlined by the prescribing pharmacist. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage and instructions provided by your healthcare professional, and to consult them if you have any concerns or questions about the medication's efficacy or possible side effects.

The effectiveness of Colgate Duraphat 200mg can vary significantly depending on various factors, such as the dosage, the condition being treated, the individual's age, weight, and overall health, as well as the presence of any other medications or substances that might interact with it.

Make sure to inform your healthcare professional about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking. The NHS offers a useful tool for checking potential drug interactions here.

Additional Information on Trimethoprim 200mg

Trimethoprim 200mg, the usual dose, is a potent antibiotic primarily used to treat bacterial infections, particularly those related to urinary infections such as cystitis. This medication operates by inhibiting the bacterial production of a vital substance, folic acid, thereby preventing the growth and spread of the infection.

While it is highly effective in managing urinary tract infections, it's essential to be aware of certain precautions. Individuals with severe liver problems, or blood disorders, should consult their healthcare provider before using Trimethoprim, as it may not be the safest option for them. Additionally, it's a common misconception that cranberry juice can treat urine infections; however, while it may help alleviate cystitis symptoms by preventing bacteria from adhering to the bladder walls, it should not replace medical treatment with antibiotics like Trimethoprim.

As with any antibiotic, it's crucial to complete the full course as prescribed, even if symptoms improve, to effectively treat bacterial infections and prevent antibiotic resistance.

How long do I need to use Colgate Duraphat toothpaste?

It is recommended to use it for 1-3 minutes and 2-3 times daily. If you have dental caries and tooth decay, you should replace the regular paste with fluoride toothpaste.

Can Colgate Duraphat toothpaste help me with gum disease?

The fluoride present in this paste strengthens the tooth and gums. They are also good if you have any gum diseases. However, any gum infections should be treated separately.

Worth using

Recommended by the dental nurse under whose treatment I presently am, this toothpaste is excellent for cleaning and maintaining my teeth. I grew up when ever toothpaste for children — a powder — had sugar in it to encourage its use: so my teeth have suffered fillings. Thankfully under a treatment scheme provided by a hospital’s dental school under the NHS issues have been addressed and this toothpaste commended.
