Recaldent™ is derived from the milk protein, casein. For many years it has been known that milk and its derivatives have a tooth protective effect. Research has shown that this activity is due to a part of the casein protein called Casein Phosphopeptide (or CPP), which carries calcium and phosphate ions in the form of Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (or ACP).
Tooth Mousse, the first product for professional use to contain this complex of CPP-ACP (Recaldent™), is the ideal delivery system for bio-available calcium and phosphate ions. MI Paste Plus in addition contains a unique, patented form of fluoride. MI Paste Plus releases all three of the ions needed to form acid-resistant fluorapatite by BOTH remineralisation and fluoridation.
All the benefits of Tooth Mousse, plus an improved remineralistion and fluoridation boost for patients who:
- need extra protection due to medium or high susceptibility to caries
- are medically compromised
- have an acidic oral environment
- suffer from erosion and gastric reflux
- need support due to very poor plaque control
When MI Paste Plus is applied to tooth surfaces, the CPP-ACP molecule binds to biofilm, plaque, bacteria, hydroxyapatite and surrounding soft tissue.
