Today we would like to share with you one of our favorite toothpastes, Colgate Total SF.
This is one of several toothpastes that we recommend to our patients on a daily basis. But before we tell you why we like and recommend this product, we want to start off by mentioning that there isn't one specific toothpaste that triumphs them all. There are several toothpastes out on the market that are great, we recommend that you buy one that fits your specific needs.
Why do we recommend Colgate Total SF to our patients?
The main reason why we recommend Colgate Total SF has to do with the efficacy of its active ingredient, Stannous Fluoride (in addition to having a great minty taste). We believe that Stannous Fluoride provides that best overall protection against the most common dental concerns that the majority of toothpastes tackle, these are:
Aids in cavity prevention.
Helps fight gingivitis (a form of gum disease).
Reduces tooth sensitivity.
As mentioned in our previous blog. Fluoride helps prevent decay by creating a "stronger" protective layer around the tooth... making it more difficult for acid causing bacteria to remove essential minerals from your tooth and cause breakdown of the tooth (decay). And this is true for all three different types of Fluorides found in toothpastes, but when comparing Stannous Fluoride to the other two Fluoride types (Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Monofluorophosphate) Stannous Fluoride is the only one that can be used as an anticaries agent, a desensitizing agent and a antimicrobial agent according to the ADA.
With this information there is no surprise why we believe Colgate Total SF is the best overall toothpaste when trying to tackle these three concerns.
What is a Colgate Professional Code/Coupon Code?
As a brand Ambassador for Colgate I can share with you my PROFESSIONAL CODE: 8QU3LM. This special coupon code will give you an exclusive discount of 20% or more! Simply use the promo code 8QU3LM at colgatedirect.com to receive a great savings on any of the products you purchase, including this great Colgate Total SF toothpaste.
As mentioned previously, we recommend that you buy a toothpaste based on your specific needs. We suggest that you talk to your Dentist or Dental Hygienist to determine which toothpaste is best for you. If you don't have a dental provider and you're unsure of which toothpaste to buy, then Colgate Total SF is a good safe bet because of its three main benefits mentioned above.
Remember that if you're sensitive to Fluoride or you just don't like Fluoridate toothpaste, then this is not a toothpaste you should be using. There are a great number of "natural" toothpastes that you can use. We will try to show you these alternatives in the near future :)
