Are fluorides toxic?
Fluorides are the most highly studied substances in the world. More than 300,000 scientific studies do not pose any threat to health when used in the correct way. The strong caries decline in Germany is attributable, among other things, to the fluoride application. According to scientific investigations, the “toxicity” of the fluorides is almost 10 times lower than that of table salt. Further information can be found on the website of the Federal Chamber of Dentists.
Does Kolorz contain menthol?
Menthol is contained in the paste in the flavor mint.
Why is the RDA value of Kolorz pastes not indicated?
The measuring method is very imprecise for determination of an RDA value to be possible. The results are not reproducible, which makes an assessment of whether a paste is abrasive or not impossible. A good comparison is the different pressure to the pen when writing.
Consequently, an RDA value is not indicated for Kolorz pastes. Instead, a range is specified in which the values lie: Fine: 0-40; Medium: 40-120; Coarse: > 120.
What are Tooth Mousse, MI Paste Plus and Remin Pro all about?
Tooth Mousse and the others are used for remineralization, not fluoridation. That is a major difference. Remineralized products contain ingredients like phosphate and calcium that occur in natural tooth substance. They should improve small defects by incorporating these ingredients into the tooth substance. Fluoridation agents are used to attach fluoride to a tooth to make it more resistant. These products cannot therefore be compared with Kolorz or other competing products.

To receive maximum fluoride uptake, do I need to leave Kolorz Foams and Gels on for the full 4 minutes, even though it says it is a 60-second gel?
To receive 100% of uptake, yes. However, please note that 80% of the fluoride will uptake within the first minute.
