MI Paste Plus: RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) Release Bio-Available Calcium and Phosphate and Fluoride


“If you want to heal a tooth the best thing you can give it is calcium and phosphate in a very specific concentration, with a little bit of fluoride. And when you do that, you super saturate the mouth with calcium phosphate, which helps restore the mineral balance. The only product that does that is MI Paste.” Dr Brian Nový, 2009 Winner of ADA Adult Preventive Care Practice of the Year.

MI Paste and MI Paste Plus by GC America are the only products for professional use containing the active ingredient RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP), a special milk-derived protein that has a unique ability to release bio-available calcium and phosphate (and fluoride in MI Paste Plus) to tooth surfaces.  Since their introduction to the dental market, MI Paste and MI Paste Plus have become essential products in many dental practices who are focused on preventive care and minimum intervention dentistry.

MI Paste Plus offers the same benefits of MI Paste, but is enhanced with a patented form of fluoride (900 ppm). Both products are safe and easy-to-use both in office and at-home and are both available in five delicious flavors: melon, mint, strawberry, tutti-frutti and vanilla.

Choose MI Paste and MI Paste Plus with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP):

  • Relieves tooth sensitivity
  • Does not irritate dry mouths
  • Provides a topical coating for patients suffering from sensitivity and oral mucosa
  • Helps minimize tooth sensitivity before and after professional cleaning and tooth whitening

A recent webinar recorded by Dr. Dan Ward DDS outlines the benefits of using MI Paste and MI Paste Plus in managing caries in high risk patients.  He provides an overview on the active ingredient, CPP-ACP.  He also talks through his recommended protocol for the most effective results.

Here are some comments from hygienists and dentists who have incorporated MI Paste and MI Paste Plus into their practices:

“I am amazed by the immediate relief of sensitivity. I now apply MI Paste immediately after every whitening procedure.”

Dr Jeff Blank, Rock Hill, SC

“MI Paste Plus is far and away the most effective treatment out there for generalized dentinal hypersensitivity.”

Dr. Brian Nový, Assistant Professor, Department of Restorative Dentistry, Loma Linda University School of Dentistry

“I personally treated my teeth using etchant for two 20 second intervals, followed by MI Paste in a tray at nighttime for 2 – 3 weeks. Very happy with the results!”

Dr Stephanie M. Benton

“I have had beautiful results using MI Paste… This patient’s teeth were first etched and she then used MI Paste twice daily in a tray for three months. Before starting the third month with MI Paste, she first used Whitestrips for two weeks. Both the patient and I are incredibly happy!”

Dr Ivan A. Serdar

“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 choosing a fluoride varnish, I 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


MI Varnish by GC America with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) enhances enamel acid resistance and boosts salivary fluoride levels. 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.

The features of MI Varnish include:

  • Easy to use: not tacky or sticky when applied
  • Smooth, creamy texture upon application
  • No color change when applied to the tooth
  • Patient-friendly fresh Strawberry and Mint flavors
  • Film thickness comfortable to patient, even with multiple applications
  • Enhanced fluoride uptake

In a recent video recorded by Dr Dan Ward DDS, he provides an introduction to this product and its exceptional properties thanks to the active ingredient of CPP-ACP. He discusses the instructions for use that ensure the best results for patients.

Here are some comments from hygienists and dentists who have incorporated MI Varnish into their practices:

“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.”  – Lance Kisby, DMD, Division Chief of Dentistry & Program Director of the Pediatric Dentistry Residency, Nemours Hospital for Children

“MI Varnish goes on very smooth and creamy. The taste is very mild.”- Mark L. Cannon, DDS,  Pediatric Dentist

“The viscosity of MI Varnish was perfect. It flowed easily over the tooth surfaces and interproximally.  More importantly, my patients loved the flavor and the consistency.”-  Sheri B. Doniger, DDS

“In treating hypersensitive teeth, MI Varnish was excellent. More than one coat could easily be applied.” – Lory Laughter, RDH, BS

“RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) technology has transformed my practice! I use MI Varnish™ and MI Paste™ because RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) technology offers a natural and unique system for releasing bioavailable calcium, phosphate and fluoride into the saliva.  MI Varnish™ and MI Paste™ are an essential part of my practice.”-  Dr Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, Salem, MA
