What is medicated toothpaste?

Medicated toothpaste is a type of toothpaste that applies a medicine to the teeth, gums and mouth. Toothpaste is an effective way to apply medicine to the teeth, mouth and gums when treating certain diseases or conditions in those areas. Common conditions for which medicated toothpaste are typically prescribed include bacterial and fungal infections, cavities, gingivitis, root exposure, dry mouth, enamel demineralization, lesions, and furcation (bone loss).

Most medicated toothpastes have specific instructions on their labeling or packaging that describe how to use the toothpaste. Some medicated toothpastes require specific application techniques or a set duration of contact with the teeth, gums and mouth in order to provide a medical benefit. Some medicated toothpastes require a specific periodicity of use, or should not be used too often, in order to maintain a healthy mouth. Medicated toothpastes will have instructions detailing all risks, side effects, warnings, and specific instructions for use. The medical professional who prescribes the medicated toothpaste will also be able to explain the purpose of the toothpaste (versus traditional toothpaste), and how to integrate it into a healthcare treatment plan for a medical condition or disease.

Medicated toothpaste may be brand-name or generic, Over-the-Counter (OTC) or prescription only. Medicated toothpaste will typically not qualify for reimbursement.
