Does MI Paste/MI Paste Plus have melamine, do they use milk from China to create MI Paste?

The milk used to create RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) comes from the dairy cows of New Zealand. The milk does not originate from China. We appreciate your concern for safety and assure you that MI Paste/MI Paste Plus does not contain melamine.

When To Use MI Paste Plus Rather Than MI Paste?

MI Paste is the only product for professional use containing RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP), a special milk-derived protein that releases calcium and phosphate to the surface of the teeth. MI Paste and MI Paste Plus are water-based and sugar-free topical tooth crèmes.

  • MI Paste:
    • Relieves tooth sensitivity
    • Does not irritate dry mouths caused by certain medications
    • Helps minimize tooth sensitivity before and after professional cleaning
    • Is helpful during orthodontics relative to helping control (or reduce) dentin sensitivity
    • Is not a toothpaste; it is a topical tooth crème that can be used safely several times daily
  • Use MI Paste:
    • For desensitizing
    • For sensitivity before and after tooth whitening
    • For children six years and under and pregnant women

MI Paste Plus offers the same benefits of MI Paste, but is enhanced with a patented form of fluoride (900 ppm). MI Paste Plus enhances mineral release without encouraging the formation of calculus. MI Paste Plus is safe and easy to use both in office and at home, and can even be claimed on a patient's insurance as fluoride treatment. It also does not irritate dry mouths caused by certain medications.

  • Use MI Paste Plus:
    • For patients who experience tooth sensitivity
    • For sensitivity before and after tooth whitening
    • For desensitizing
    • Does not irritate dry mouths caused by certain medications

Is MI Paste/MI Paste Plus safe for patients with milk allergies? 

The active ingredient in MI Paste/MI Paste Plus is RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP). RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) is milk-derived and should not be used by patients with milk protein allergies. Casein phosphopeptides are derived from milk casein (a milk protein). DO NOT use MI Paste/MI Paste Plus if you have a proven or suspected milk protein (IgE) allergy.

What separates MI Paste from other calcium products?

RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) technology has been extensively researched at the University of Melbourne Dental School (Australia) since the 1980’s. There are over 100 studies substantiating the benefits of RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP), the active ingredient in MI Paste

 What is MI Paste Plus?

MI Paste Plus has all the benefits of MI Paste, but contains a unique, patented form of fluoride (900 ppm).

MI Paste Plus provides a superior form of fluoride ions as it also contains CPP-ACP (casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate). CPP-ACP + fluoride (F) has been shown to increase fluoride's uptake into plaque and subsurface enamel and substantially increase subsurface enamel strengthening in situations with fluoroapatite relative to fluoride alone, by providing bio-available calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions in the correct molar ratio to form fluoroapatite in the body of the lesion, not just at the surface layer.

For children under six years of age, the use of the regular MI Paste is recommended.

  • MI Paste Plus:
    • For patients who experience tooth sensitivity
    • For sensitivity before and after tooth whitening
    • For desensitizing
    • Does not irritate dry mouths caused by certain medications

Why MI Paste Plus with fluoride vs Prevident booster?

MI Paste with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) combined with a low dose fluoride applied regularly aids for thorough tooth-strengthening extending to the depth of the enamel rod, versus superficial strengthening which may extend partially in depth.
