What makes Colgate Total different from other Toothpastes?
Colgate Total toothpastes contain a unique antibacterial system giving you 12 hour protection even after you eat or drink. Colgate Total toothpastes are the only ones clinically proven to protect against cavities, plaque, tartar, gum problems and bad breath for 12 hours.
What is the unique combination of ingredients in the Colgate Total formula?
All Colgate Total toothpastes contain a unique formula that fights today's most common oral health problems, including plaque, tartar build-up, gingivitis, and bad breath. The Colgate Total formula is so revolutionary it's even patented, until 2008. Its active ingredient is Triclosan, which is used to help reduce plaque and gingivitis. The Gantrez copolymer enables Triclosan to continue working in the mouth for 12 hours. Without the copolymer, Triclosan would be rapidly lost from teeth and gums, reducing its clinical effect. Colgate Total toothpastes are the ONLY ones with this unique Triclosan/Gantrez copolymer system. They also contain fluoride for protection against cavities, are effective in reducing tartar, and provide long-lasting fresh breath protection.
Does Colgate Total continue to work even after I eat or drink?
All Colgate Total toothpastes contain a unique combination of ingredients that attaches to your teeth and gums and does not get washed away even when you eat or drink - so your whole mouth is protected for 12 hours.
How does Triclosan work to prevent gingivitis?
Gingivitis occurs in the presence of plaque. Plaque consists mainly of bacteria. Since Triclosan is an antibacterial agent, its effect on plaque causes a beneficial effect on gingivitis. Colgate does, however, strongly emphasise that this is not a replacement for regular professional dental care.
What germ / bacteria is Colgate Total effective against?
There are over 300 species of bacteria in the mouth that are associated with disease. Triclosan is effective against most of the bacteria or micro-organisms found in the oral cavity. For how long do we claim it is effective? It has been shown to provide protection for 12 hours.
Does Colgate Total Plus Whitening provide the same benefits as Colgate Total and Colgate Total Fresh Stripe?
Yes. When you use Colgate Total Plus Whitening you will receive the same comprehensive benefits of Colgate Total paste and Colgate Total Fresh Stripe, plus whiter teeth.
Can I use Colgate Total everyday?
Yes. Brush twice a day with Colgate Total and you'll know your teeth are cleaner and your breath will be fresher around the clock.
Does Colgate Total contain fluoride?
Yes. In addition to protecting against plaque, tartar build-up, gingivitis, and bad breath, all Colgate Total toothpastes contain fluoride to strengthen teeth and provide cavity protection.
