Ordinary fluoride toothpastes# limit outcomes by providing fluoride protection to 20% of mouth surfaces (teeth). Ordinary fluoride toothpastes# do not fight bacteria. Immediately after brushing, bacteria quickly repopulate on 100% of mouth surfaces:
- Hard tissue (20%) – teeth
- Soft tissue (80%) – tongue, cheeks, gums.
This can increase the risk of common oral health issues such as plaque, tartar, gum problems and malodour.
New Colgate Total with dual-zinc and arginine fights bacteria on all mouth surfaces to help your patients achieve whole mouth health.*
New Colgate Total with dual-zinc and arginine demonstrates superior reduction of bacteria versus ordinary fluoride toothpaste, 12 hours after brushing* on:
- Teeth: 38.3% bacterial reduction
- Tongue: 39.7% bacterial reduction
- Cheeks: 35.4% bacterial reduction
- Gums: 25.9% bacterial reduction.
Superior reductions of plaque and gum problems versus ordinary fluoride toothpaste at three and six months.¥
New Colgate Total is clinically proven to reduce plaque (by 30.1 %; p < 0.001) and gum problems (by 26.3 %; p < 0.001) when compared to ordinary non-antibacterial fluoride toothpaste after six months.
