“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.”

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
