1 x 40g (35mL) tube
PLUS flavors contain Fluoride.
Caution: People with MILK PROTEIN allergies should NOT use this or any other product containing Recaldent as Recaldent is derived from milk.
Natural saliva contains calcium, phosphate, and fluoride which in combination with certain salivary protein help to strengthen tooth enamel and defend against plaque acid by replenishing these minerals which are lost from the tooth surface during demineralization. Demineralization occurs in the presence of acid foods/drink, cavity causing bacteria and tooth bleaching. Saliva actually remineralizes the tooth surface.
GC MI Paste is a one-of-a-kind product that restores minerals and helps you produce saliva. It is the only dental product with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP), a special milk-derived protein that is a breakthrough in oral health care in helping to remineralize teeth. MI Paste with Recaldent uniquely delivers this calcium and phosphate to the surface of teeth as well as surrounding soft tissue surfaces to promote oral health. Recaldent™ supplements the calcium and phosphate loss from saliva during the normal acidic digestive process. It also soothes any sensitive surfaces on teeth.
RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) – Bio-available Calcium and Phosphate:
Contains RECALDENT (CPP-ACP). Casein Phosphopeptide (CPP) are natural occurring molecules which are able to bind calcium and phosphate ions and stabilize Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP).
Adheres easily to soft tissue, pellicle, plaque and even hydroxyapatite. Reacts similar to the mineral/statherin relation in saliva supplying bio-available calcium and phosphate required for remineralization to take place.
Under acidic conditions, RECALDENT (CPP-ACP) releases calcium and phosphate ions into tooth enamel.
Supplies calcium and phosphate needed for patients with poor saliva flow. This situation can be further augmented by elevating the level of fluoride.
Water-based, sugar-free topical creme with a special blend of polishing, cleaning and dentina tubule sealing agents.
Flavors: melon, mint, strawberry, tutti frutti and vanilla.
MI Paste with RECALDENT (CPP-ACP) fortifies your teeth to keep your smile vibrant for a lifetime.
I tried both Vanilla and Tutti Frutti, and Tutti Frutti just tasted like the vanilla with a bit of banana and maybe light melon flavor in it. The vanilla is really subtle.
After using it in the evening, I noticed a dry mouth in the morning, but that could be just because I was trying not to swallow the remaining fluoride left in my mouth.
I find results are best when left on from 1/2 hour or more. My teeth feel stronger when I bite, and are brighter. I haven't noticed any painful sensitivity in my teeth after sweets since I've been using it. That's awesome.
I've been using this paste for 2 months and I have tried both the regular and "Plus" versions, and I have to say I didn't notice much difference between them with their effect on my teeth.
I came across this product after hearing about a similar, but faster-acting Paste-Application they use in Japan to whiten and strengthen teeth by remineralization at the FAP dental institute. I decided to give this a try first, before jetting off to Tokyo.
I wish they didn't sweeten it with Sodium Saccharin. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

This paste is awesome!! It is not really to brush your teeth with. You can, and have some benefit but you are losing a lot of product and benefit if you brush and rinse it out.
It is really made to use in dental trays to stay in contact with your teeth , it actually replenishes the enamel on your teeth and even feed calcium through the gum and can help your gums and jawbone.
So it's great to use after any dental treatmenst esp whitening. You don't have to use a tray but it's more effective that way. I usually use it by smearing or brushing on at night and leaving it on. The longer it is in contact with your teeth the better.
It is great for sensitive teeth. It does not just block the pain it seals up the weakness in the tooth and makes it stronger.
If you grind your teeth this would be good, if you are cavity prone this is great. If you are whitening your teeth this is great! I think you get the picture.
If you have a tooth pulled for an implant the bioactive calcium will be good for your jaw bone before during and after the implant.
