The new formula is designed to fight plaque-causing bacteria on 100 percent of mouth surfaces.

Colgate® introduces the Next Generation of Colgate Total®. New Colgate Total®SF contains a new stannous fluoride formula stabilized with zinc phosphate that reportedly fights plaque-causing bacteria on 100 percent of mouth surfaces*1, including teeth, tongue, cheeks and gums, providing the ideal preventive solution for whole mouth health.

Colgate Total®SF is said to effectively fight harmful bacteria while protecting against bacterial repopulation, significantly reducing the overall bacterial load while creating a protective barrier that helps shield against attachment and regrowth. In development for more than a decade, the unique formula of new Colgate Total®SF is the subject of 28 granted patents and 95 pending patent applications.

Specifically, ongoing clinical testing of new Colgate Total®SF is said to show superior reductions versus ordinary non-antibacterial toothpaste in:

  • Plaque

  • Gingivitis

  • Calculus

What’s more, Colgate Total®SF reportedly now provides additional new benefits like:

  • Sensitivity relief

  • Enhanced enamel strength

  • Odor neutralization           

“The advanced fluoride formula of Colgate Total®SF offers significant advantages versus ordinary fluoride toothpaste and still retains all of the benefits that dental professionals already love about our original Colgate Total,” says Dr. Barbara Shearer, director of scientific affairs for Colgate. “Our advanced fluoride formula provides multiple benefits for the whole mouth. These attractive features combined with a great taste make Colgate Total®SF a great tool to empower dental professionals and patients striving to achieve whole mouth heath.”
