NO PROBLEMS WITH THIS PRODUCT.
In 2002, at 49 years, I had to have my salivary glands removed from one side due to cancer (natural way of fighting tooth cavities). I was advised by my Dental Professor to use Colgate Gelcam 1 x daily. A few years ago Colgate ceased production of Gelcam, so I went to using their NeutraFluor 5000. I use it once nightly before bed, just spit it out and don't rinse.
Having used both these similar products over all these years, I've found no fault with them, and my local dentist is very happy with my lack of cavities. Apparently, one side affect is your teeth may stain? I don't seem to have that problem (not that my Dentist has mentioned it), but I also use Colgate Total with Whitner 2 x daily just to be on the safe side.
Neutrafluor is NOT expensive when you consider you need
far less on your toothbrush than regular toothpaste. I have been using it for 3 years with no side affects.
Careful not to use it too often and always rinse really well
My mother got very sick when she packed this product as her only toothpaste on holidays. She had ulcers all through her mouth. This is toxic use sparingly and rinse four or five times after use. It's not like normal toothpaste.
Solved my problem
At first when I started using neutrafluor I used it on a tooth brush as instructed. After a while I started to notice my teeth started to hurt badly and became tender. I then put a dab on my finger and ran it over an infected area of a sore tooth. Amazingly after about 6 hours the infection with the pain went away. I kept it up for a couple of days to make sure it did not come back. So far, because of this product I have saved the tooth from the destruction by a dentist as when you get to my age you you appreciate what you have left of you teeth. Thank you Colgate for a wonderful product that fight decay. AAA111+

Know better, choose better.
I have been using it for about 5 years successfully, after my dentist reccomended it.
some complain about the price: but it lasts 3 times as long because you only use a little & do not rinse afterwards
Colgate NeutraFluor 5000
Is very expensive, and you need to ask the pharmacist for it as is kept behind the counter and not on the shelf, don't need any papers just say recommended by dentist. Chemist Warehouse seems to have cheaper than many places for just under $10. The nozzle is much smaller than normal which helps to use it sparingly.
Love the Product - BUT THE PRICE!!!!
NeutraFluor 5000 Fantastic product - works exceptionally well. BUT $15 a tube. Outrageous!!!
Colgate - not everyone in Australia is a millionaire!!! How about a much lower, socially responsible price.This must be one of the worlds most expensive toothpaste??? Fluoride is NOT that expensive to produce.
Questions & Answers
My dentist recommended I use this product, but he didn’t say if it was to replace my original toothpaste permanently or temporarily. I’m on my second tube, about to purchase a third. Do I just continue using it or is it something that needs to be used less frequently over time?
I stopped using it for the same reason. But pain slowly came back. So for me 1 or twice daily works and flossing.
So yes indeed it works for me with a soft brush and a little warm water and follow instructions. Foams up nicely don't scrub hard. Brush gently along the gum line to the top of the teeth.
I had my saliva glands taken out on one side back in 2002. I was told to use NeutraFluor 5000 once a night to help prevent cavities due to the loss of the gland. In nearly 20 years I've only missed about 10 times on using it. My Dentist says my teeth are good for a person in their lates 60's.
Hi Danielle, thanks for your question. As Colgate Neutrafluor 5000 Plus is recommended to be used in a variety of situations, and as individual needs will vary, we encourage to consult your prescribing dentist about the continued use of this product.
What percentage is actually fluoride in Neutrafluor ??
Most advanced whitening toothpastes
(not standard toothpaste)
use a max of 1000ppm of fluoride, however this contains 5X the amount of fluoride at 5000ppm.
The packet also says it’s contains
1.1% w/w Neutral Sodium Fluoride
Hope that helps
I have radiating pain receding gums
I saw a dentist and he recommended this how long does it take to work
I’m smearing it on
Yes indeed it works for me with a soft brush and a little warm water and follow instructions. Foams up nicely don't scrub hard. Brush gently along the gum line to the top of the teeth. Initially took a couple of weeks to gradually improve. Also flossing daily.
