Three Kid-Friendly Flavors
The newest member of the MI Paste® family is a two-in-one application (toothpaste and MI Paste Plus®) containing RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP) and fluoride, in three delicious flavors:
What is RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP)?
The power of RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP) and fluoride together.
When fluoride meets RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP), the peptide preferentially combines with, and stabilizes, fluoride to create an excellent source for building fluorapatite. Using bio-available calcium, phosphate, and fluoride, the full potential of fluoride to help protect and repair teeth can be achieved.
In other words, MI Paste® ONE Kids, containing RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP) and fluoride, is an excellent remineralization delivery vehicle for fluoride.
Only RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP):
- Uses naturally occurring molecules (CPP) that bind calcium and phosphate ions and stabilize ACP
- Delivers the essential building blocks of teeth in a noncrystalline state to your patients’ teeth
The only natural solution of its kind, RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP):
- Is a naturally occurring milk protein
- Protects the ACP component
- Is very sticky
- Acts as an effective delivery vehicle for ACP to the tooth
RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP) technology has proven its effectiveness time and again as the most researched, evidenced-based calcium phosphate delivery:
- First developed and tested in Australia
- Extensively researched by the University of Melbourne Dental School beginning in the 1980’s
- Dozens of clinical trials and laboratory studies worldwide
How RECALDENT® & Fluoride Work Together
MI Paste® products release RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP) - a natural milk protein peptide that adheres to soft tissue, plaque, pellicle, and enamel’s hydroxyapatite delivering amorphous calcium and phosphate (ACP) into the saliva. The mechanism of action is similar to that of the salivary protein statherin and the supply of bio-available calcium and phosphate is able to drive remineralization by Fluoride, buffer acid, and reduce the plaque acid effect on tooth structure.
An analysis of the chemistry of demineralization and remineralization indicates that a major source of mineral loss in the caries process is the destruction of apatite with the creation of water as a by-product, and the leakage of a neutral species calcium hydrogen phosphate across a porous enamel surface.
When placed on the surface of a tooth, RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP) interacts with hydrogen ions and forms the same species calcium hydrogen phosphate which, under a diffusion gradient, can enter the tooth, react with and consume the water to produce enamel mineral, thereby removing subsurface mineral defects.
Any incipient white spot lesions which are developing because of cariogenic plaque can be treated locally with RECALDENT® (CPP-ACP) to achieve subsurface remineralization by Fluoride. This may occur in fairly short periods of time – in the order of two to four weeks.
