Colgate® Kids Little Smiles 3+
Colgate® Kids Little Smiles 3+ powered by 1450ppm fluoride plus Arginine and insoluble Calcium compounds provides greater cavity protection vs regular fluoride toothpaste for children and families.⁴,⁵
Colgate® Kids Little Smiles 3+ daily toothpaste combines the Sugar Acid Neutraliser Technology with 1450ppm fluoride for greater cavity protection versus a regular fluoride toothpaste3. The Sugar Acid Neutraliser Technology neutralises sugar acids in plaque, restoring pH at the tooth's surface to a healthy level. This works in combination with fluoride that helps inhibit demineralization and promotes remineralisation.
- Helps fight cavities before they form1,2
- Directly targets and neutralises sugar acids in plaque
- Restores pH to a healthier level1
- Greater reduction in demineralisation*3
- 4x greater remineralisation*3
- Up to 20% fewer new cavities in 2 years§4,5
Suitable for all patients 3 years and over.
Children of 6 years and younger: use a pea-sized amount for supervised brushing to minimise swallowing
*Results from a remineralisation study vs a regular fluoride toothpaste, both with 1450 ppm fluoride.
§Results from two 2-year clinical study vs a regular fluoride toothpaste, both with 1450 ppm fluoride.
Parent supervised brushing twice a day. Ensure children spit out after brushing to minimise swallowing and avoid rinsing with water. Children of age 6 and younger: use a pea size for supervised brushing to minimise swallowing. In case of intake of fluoride from other sources consult a dentist or doctor.
