Gives you bright glow-in-the-dark teeth for that noticeably glowing smile at night. ;) Plus it could be used to make sure you don't miss a spot while you're brushing your teeth. Comes in a new cavity fighting formula that leaves your breath feeling tingley and fresh . * No worries, it's non-toxic*

       What a great idea, madradish! :)
[Crayola], you didn't say how it's done, but there are a couple of ways. If it's a gel toothpaste, an internal battery and an LED near the nozzle would light things up.
But I think you can use "light stick" technology. A system of tanks and valves can dispense the chemicals on demand, so the toothpaste begins to glow. That stuff is supposedly non-toxic.
It has the "delicious flavored toothpaste" problem -- the kids will use it all up instantly. In this case, by squirting the whole tube all over the floor, walls, etc. Of course, adults such as I will be doing that, too... +

       Also great for making sure the kids have actually brushed their teeth.

       The stuff inside glowsticks doesn't taste all that great, plus how will the glowstick stuff stay glowing? we all know that the stuff only lasts for about 8 hours (10 if your freeze it) in the tube. You'd have to crack your toothpaste to get it to glow. Hey, individual packets of the stuff, that would work, right?

       This sounds cool, but from my own experience, the glowstick fluid doesn't last too long in your mouth. And it burns when it gets in your eyes. And like [Veritas] said, it tastes nasty.
