Colgate Duraphat Fluoride Toothpaste

Colgate Duraphat toothpaste is a prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste for adults who require additional support for their teeth to prevent tooth decay. 

Duraphat toothpaste can be purchased from The Independent Pharmacy and delivered to you, once you have completed an online consultation that has been approved by one of our medical team. 

Duraphat Information

  • Age: 18 years +

    Maximum per order: 3

  • Pregnancy: Not suitable

    Breastfeeding: Not suitable

What is Duraphat and what is it used for?

Colgate Duraphat is sodium fluoride toothpaste available on prescription to prevent tooth decay in adults who are at high risk of developing dental caries.

People who may benefit from a high strength fluoride toothpaste include those with:

  • exposed roots
  • a high sugar diet
  • a dry mouth
  • orthodontic appliances
  • a history of tooth decay
  • difficulties with manual tooth brushing

With daily use, this high fluoride toothpaste can help prevent tooth decay and even help repair the enamel and dentine to reverse the damage that has already occurred. 

 

How does Duraphat work?

Duraphat contains a high dose of sodium fluoride, which when applied directly to the teeth prevents the breakdown of the tooth surface and prompts remineralization helping to repair and strengthen teeth that may already be damaged.

 

How long does Duraphat take to work?

With regular, long-term use, Colgate Duraphat is highly effective at promoting stronger healthier teeth.

 

What is the difference between Duraphat and other fluoride toothpaste?

Most over-the-counter toothpaste contains 1450ppm of fluoride, however, Duraphat has been clinically designed to promote the repair and strength of vulnerable teeth and therefore can be prescribed at either 2800ppm or 5000ppm depending on the recommended dose to suit you.

How to use Duraphat toothpaste

Duraphat toothpaste is applied directly to the teeth. For use by adults over the age of 18 years. You should use this product as prescribed instead of your normal toothpaste.

  1. Brush your teeth with Duraphat 3 times a day after eating. 
  2. Apply a 2cm ribbon of paste to your toothbrush. 
  3. Brush vertically down from the gum to the tip of your teeth for 3 minutes.
  4. Spit out, being careful not to swallow.

It is very rare for Duraphat toothpaste to cause side effects. However, it may cause some people to experience allergic reactions including:

  • A rash
  • Swelling
  • Itching 
  • Redness
  • Burning sensation in your mouth

If, in the unfortunate event, you develop any of these symptoms you should speak to a dentist, doctor or pharmacist for advice.
