Duraphat Toothpaste

Duraphat Toothpaste is a type of medicinal toothpaste prescribed to people who are at high risk of severe tooth decay. Tooth decay is sometimes known as caries, and Duraphat is prescribed to adults and adolescents over 16 years old who are at risk of multiple caries. Tooth decay can occur at any age due to poor diet or poor dental hygiene. It can lead to both cosmetic issue, such as yellowing teeth and rot, and physical pain from toothache. Duraphat can help prevent the spread of decay, even once it has begun, by rebuilding the tooth’s enamel.

If you need to use Duraphat Toothpaste, you can buy it online safely from a UK doctor such as Doctor-4-U by completing our simple medical questionnaire and getting a certified prescription. It will be dispatched within 24 hours.

Why use Duraphat Toothpaste?

Some people may benefit from the higher level of fluoride that’s in Duraphat if they’re at risk of tooth decay. Duraphat contains higher levels of fluoride than regular toothpaste to help protect and strengthen the teeth. The levels of fluoride in regular toothpaste (1,350-1,500ppm) are enough to protect healthy adult teeth which are not at a high risk of cavities and decay. However, those patients at higher risk may want to use higher levels of fluoride in their toothpaste, ranging from 2,800 to 5000ppm.

Everyone is at risk of tooth decay if we don’t properly look after our teeth, but there are some who will benefit from using Duraphat now particularly if they already have tooth decay or if they’re at a higher risk of developing tooth decay. Those who are suitable to use Duraphat Toothpaste include patients who currently have tooth decay or a history of tooth decay, they have root surfaces which are exposed, they have braces or other orthodontic appliances, or they have a diet high in sugary foods.

How does Duraphat Toothpaste work?

Duraphat contains the active ingredient sodium fluoride, which belongs to a family of medicines called caries preventive agents. Sodium fluoride protects teeth against decay by rebuilding the tooth’s enamel, which can be worn away by acids in the mouth. It can also help to rebuild enamel, where the damage and decay has already begun. Good dental hygiene is the best way to prevent tooth decay.

Tooth decay treatment

Flouride treatment such as higher dose fluoride toothpaste is the first step in treating early signs of tooth decay. It may help to reverse the cavity and strengthen and restore the tooth if it’s in the early stages of decay. However, in the later stages of tooth decay fluoride treatment will not be enough to restore the tooth and further, more intensive treatment may be needed such as fillings, crowns, root canals, and if the tooth is beyond repair it may need extracting. Fluoride cavity treatment is a way of protecting vulnerable teeth and preventing the loss of a tooth.

Is Duraphat Toothpaste suitable for me?

Although Duraphat is designed for adults over the age of 16 years old who are suffering from tooth decay, your medical history may mean it isn’t right for you. Duraphat contains a high fluoride content, too much fluoride over a long period of time can be damaging to your health, particularly in children with developing teeth. This is why Duraphat Toothpaste is not recommended for children and adolescents below the age of 16.

You should speak to your doctor before using Duraphat if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you are allergic to sodium fluoride or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.

How to use Colgate Duraphat Toothpaste?

You should brush your teeth with Duraphat Toothpaste three times a day, particularly in the morning and before you go to bed. Use a 2cm ribbon of toothpaste on your brush, and brush your teeth thoroughly for three minutes. Do not swallow the toothpaste, spit it out. If you swallow too much of this product and you’re experiencing vomiting, diarrhoea, and stomach pain, see your doctor as soon as possible to determine whether you may need treatment for these side effects.

What are the side effects of using Duraphat Toothpaste?

Like all medications, Duraphat may have side effects, but not everyone gets them. There is a very rare risk of an allergic reaction occurring, which is characterised by swelling of the face and hands, and difficulty breathing. Contact your doctor immediately if you believe this is the case.

Duraphat Toothpaste is prescribed to those who are at risk of serious long term damage to their teeth caused by decay and rot. This may seem like merely a cosmetic issue, but it can lead to damage to the gums, and serious pain as the problem spreads and you get older.
