Last chance to win Apple AirPods with the Colgate five-day biofilm challenge

Keeping patients protected, not only from the virus but from dental disease where possible, is key to maintaining a high standard of quality care. Supporting patients in maintaining good oral health at home is therefore more important than ever.

Over the past week (17-21 August 2020), Dentistry Online’s social media accounts have been busy publishing a daily one-minute video from Colgate. These new short video clips cover how Colgate Total delivers superior biofilm control to help your patients achieve whole mouth health.

After watching the videos, Colgate asked five questions. Once filled in, viewers are automatically entered into a prize draw to win a pair of Apple AirPods.

The videos covered:

  1. Biofilm and the challenges of biofilm control
  2. Colgate Total – mode of action
  3. Delivery penetration and retention of zinc
  4. Reduction of biofilm mass
  5. Sustained inhibition of bacterial growth.

This is an innovative and interactive opportunity to remind dentists and dental professionals about some of the basics of achieving whole mouth health#. And in the meantime, viewers have the opportunity to win a pair of Apple AirPods*!

However, the competition has been extended to the 4 September 2020. There is still a chance to enter; simply follow the links below, watch each of the videos and fill in the questions at the end.

Colgate Total

Effective biofilm control will help stabilise the periodontal health of patients (NHS Standard Operating Procedure – Transition to Recovery). Colgate Total with dual zinc and arginine also provides sustained inhibition of bacteria regrowth after 12 hours (Colgate data on file). §,† 

The short one-minute videos will cover the challenges regarding biofilm control and how dual zinc and arginine technology can therefore help.

You can catch up with all the videos below. This is your last chance to enter!

†Colgate Total provides superior in-vitro delivery, penetration, and retention of zinc. This is through arginine technology for biomass reductions versus zinc control toothpaste.
