MI Paste™ with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) Helps
Prevent and Repair White Spot Lesions
The science behind the smile
Extensively researched since the 1980s, RECALDENT™ technology, featuring casein phosphopeptide
amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP), has proven to bind readily to pellicle, plaque, soft tissue and
even hydroxyapatite when applied within the oral cavity.1 This helps maintain a state of supersaturation of
calcium and phosphate at the tooth surface, which depresses demineralization and enhances remineralization.
As you know, wearing braces can
make it more difficult for your
patients to keep their teeth clean.
Food can become trapped around
orthodontic brackets and wires,
causing plaque to build up over time —
potentially leading to tooth decay.
GC America has the answer.
MI Paste™ is the first product for
professional use to contain the active
ingredient RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP),
a special milk-derived peptide that
helps prevent and repair white spots
(sub-surface lesions) during orthodontic
treatment by delivering calcium and
phosphate ions into the tooth structure.
