Does Toothpaste Expire?

Answer

Toothpaste does come with an expiration date. The main reason for the date is because of the fluoride ingredient which may be less effective from a toothpaste that has gone beyond its expiration date. If your toothpaste has recently expired, you should be OK if you want to use it. If it has expired a very long time ago, it may have dried out or the ingredients may have separated.
