What Really Happens When Toothpaste Expires?

Most people tend to pay attention to expiration dates. This is understandable, especially when it comes to groceries like meat and vegetables, which can make you very ill if they are no longer fresh.

However, few people tend to think about the expiration date on their toothpaste as it tends to be a constant product that a lot of people use. However, it is important to keep the expiration date of your toothpaste in mind.

How Long Does Toothpaste Last?

Toothpaste can actually last for a very long time. The length of time usually depends on the brand of toothpaste that you buy, however, according to Colgate it can last well up to two years after it is has passed its date.

This often means that even if you do not really pay attention to the expiration date, you'll still be using the toothpaste every day so it probably won't even reach that point.

For people who like to stock up, however, it is a good idea to keep an eye on just how long it lasts. Even then, you can still keep it in your bathroom cabinet for a good, long while (especially if it is high quality).

What Happens If Toothpaste Expires?

If toothpaste does finally reach its expiration date, there are a couple of things that can occur. One of the most common things that happens is the separation of ingredients.

This often means that they crystallize. In addition, there may be some loss of the paste's fluoride stability. Overall, it does mean that the toothpaste can be rather unpleasant. However, expired toothpaste will not harm you.

Overall, it is important to seek out the best advice when it comes to dental health.
