NEW YORK—Colgate's next generation of Colgate Total, Colgate Total SF, contains a new stannous fluoride formula stabilized with zinc phosphate that fights plaque-causing bacteria on 100 percent of mouth surfaces* including teeth, tongue, cheeks, and gums, providing the ideal preventive solution for whole mouth health.
The new toothpaste fights 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 formula of new Colgate Total SF is the subject of 28 granted patents and 95 pending patent applications.
Offering comprehensive benefits for the whole mouth, the new advanced formula addresses all indications of the original Colgate Total including plaque, gingivitis, caries, stain removal/whitening and calculus.

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.”
