MI Varnish is a bioavailable varnish treatment that contains calcium, phosphate and fluoride. This product remains on the teeth longer than other fluoride varnishes and contains high levels of fluoride and calcium released in the oral cavity. The difference is in the RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP), which makes MI Varnish a natural and unique choice for your patients. Casein phosphopeptides (CPP) naturally occurs in milk casein; Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), which is found in the RECALDENT™, is also the source of calcium and phosphate. In the oral cavity, CPP binds to oral surfaces such as teeth, dentin, oral mucosa and biofilm. Calcium and phosphate ions are the building blocks for healthy teeth and MI Varnish delivers bioavailable calcium and phosphate ions into the saliva.

"Nice consistency, great brush, great material, goes on smooth and with one easy layer. MI Varnish flows very nice, not too thick and not too watery. It sticks to the brush very well and does not drip from the brush as you take it from container to tooth. As to the color of the MI Varnish, patients loved it, moms could not see it, kids are not bothered by the color."

"As a clinician MI Varnish is a must! When applying MI Varnish to the teeth, the flowability and maneuvering of the brush was excellent. This is the best applicator brush I've used. Adherence was no problem at all.
When I am choosing a fluoride varnish, I have to take several things into consideration. It is not just how the product works for me as a clinician. Equally important is how the patient reacts to the product. Patient compliance and acceptance will not only make a huge difference in my job but it also helps to determine the out come of the use of the product. MI Varnish has the greatest acceptance rate of any product I have ever used. Patients love that it is not gummy, runny or leave you with a bad taste in your mouth."
Noel Brandon Kelsch, RDHAP
