Duraphat prescription



Junior member
Sep 26, 2012
I was prescribed Duraphat for tooth wear by my dentist for tooth , but he didn't give me much information about it. I was only given one prescription, abt for or five packs, so I am not sure what I should do when it runs out.

Should I go back to the dentists when it runs out or Is there somewhere I can buy Duraphat toothpaste?
Is there another brand that doe's the same thing>?
I have duraphat toothpaste, In the UK the dentist gives me this on prescription, I don't think you can buy in it the shops.
Nope but your dentist can buy that from suppliers. Might be worthwhile asking if your dentist can stock it because it will be less than the NHS prescription fee.
