MI Paste™ & MI Paste Plus™
Topical Tooth Crème Containing Calcium, Phosphate & Fluoride

Features and Benefits

  • MI Paste and MI Paste Plus contain RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP); Casein Phosphopeptide (CPP) are natural occurring molecules which are able to release calcium and phosphate ions and stabilize Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), which is also the source of calcium and phosphate
  • RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) is a special milk-derived protein that can help decrease dentin hypersensitivity
  • MI Paste and MI Paste Plus with RECALDENT (CPP-ACP) adheres easily to soft tissue, pellicle, plaque and even hydroxyapatite; they react similar to the mineral/statherin relation in saliva supplying bio-available calcium and phosphate (and also fluoride in MI Paste Plus) required for supersaturation to take place1,2
  • MI Paste supplies calcium and phosphate needed for patients with poor saliva flow; this situation can be further augmented by elevating the level of fluoride (by using MI Paste Plus, which has fluoride)
