Fluoride toothpaste alone reduces early decay by 32%.

What causes cavities?
The number one cause of tooth decay is the consumption of sugary foods and drinks on a regular basis. Today, the world daily average consumption of added sugar per person is 17 teaspoons, up 45% compared to 30 years ago. The bacteria in your mouth convert sugars into acids. Over time, the acids eat away at the surface of your tooth, attacking the enamel, weakening the tooth and causing decay. Dental decay has declined globally since the 1970s, yet recent data indicates an increase of the disease.
Can I use the toothpaste every day?
Absolutely. Like all Colgate toothpastes, Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection plus Sugar Acid Neutraliser contains fluoride within the recommended levels to help strengthen teeth, and protect tooth enamel. So brush twice daily with Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection plus Sugar Acid Neutraliser and youll know you are protecting your teeth with Colgates best ever family cavity protection toothpaste!
