In this era, even though major research has been made in advanced treatment modalities the basic requirement of prevention has not changed. This aspect has a major role to play for success of advanced treatment. This is possible because a thought has also been given to provide aids and agents for prevention of dental and periodontal diseases. Dentifrice is one such important tool which can help patients in attaining required level of prevention. Recently many ingredients have been added to the routine components of dentifrices which increase their effectiveness and functionality. Thus we are now made available with more advanced toothpastes. This article will make aware the dental professionals about the different antiplaque/antibacterial, anticaries, anticalculus, antihypersensitivity, antihalitosis and antioxidant agents used in dentifrices and tried and found to be effective. This article will facilitate easy selection of dentifrices as per patients require.
