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 in this past is sodium fluoride (0.619 w/w% or 2800ppm). Sodium fluoride prevents dental caries and tooth rot by strengthening the enamel and making it more resistant to acids. It also fortifies the enamel by increasing the buildup of minerals in it.
Is Colgate Duraphat toothpaste suitable for me?
It is suitable for adults and children aged over 10 years. Besides preventing caries, it also helps treat already occurring caries. It is not suitable if you are allergic to any ingredients or for children under 10.

- Cardiovascular issues

- Joint stiffness
- Higher incidences of bone fractures
Stop using it if any signs of allergic reactions are noted.
