Editor’s note: This Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews. In systematic reviews we search for and summarize studies that answer a specific research question (e.g. is paracetamol effective and safe for treating back pain?). The studies are identified, assessed, and summarized by using a systematic and predefined approach. They inform recommendations for healthcare and research. will not be updated given that as far as we are aware toothpaste containing triclosan is no longer commercially available as of early 2019
