Colgate Total is an everyday toothpaste with 12 hour anti-bacterial activity. Colgate Total contains a unique, patented combination of triclosan, an anti-bacterial agent and copolymer. After the plaque has been disrupted through effective brushing, triclosan is retained on the tooth surface by the copolymer, where it can help prevent the plaque from reforming for up to 12 hours.
