Description:MI Paste is a water-based topical paste containing a patented bioavailable calcium and phosphate combination called Recaldent. It is for use in the dental office or may be dispensed to patients for use at home. When applied to the oral environment in the presence of saliva, the manufacturer reports that it binds to biofilms, plaque, bacteria, hydroxyapatite, and soft tissues, localizing the bioavailable calcium and phosphate. This mechanism in turn assists in inhibiting demineralization and promoting remineralization by releasing calcium and phosphate under acid challenge and helps facilitate the immediate sealing of dentinal tubules. Indications for use include highcaries risk individuals such as orthodontic patients and those with xerostomia as well as patients who experience sensitivity as the result of recession, scaling and root planing and bleaching. MI Paste may be applied with a prophy cup following routine prophylaxis or at home in a custom tray or with a fingertip. The patient is advised not to eat or drink for 30 minutes after use. The 40-g tube of MI Paste is available through the dental professional in five flavors (Strawberry, Melon, Vanilla, Mint, and Tutti-Frutti).
