Numerous activities can harm your teeth and create an acid imbalance in your mouth. When that happens, your teeth can lose nutrients and strength, and you could have trouble producing enough saliva containing the minerals your teeth need to stay strong and healthy.
MI Paste and MI Paste Plus (with fluoride) is made from a milk-derived protein (casein) and is completely safe, even if you are lactose intolerant. It works by replenishing calcium and phosphate in your enamel, promoting mineralization and thus strengthening your teeth. MI Paste releases minerals into your mouth when needed to help produce a saliva-like environment that helps maintain a normal pH and protects from the development of cavities. It is especially helpful if you have any of the following:
· Sensitivity from hot and cold, after bleaching or whitening and after a professional cleaning
· Patients with braces to prevent white spots and to remineralize existing white spots
· Dry mouth symptoms caused by medications, chemotherapy and/or head and neck radiation
· High acidity levels caused by soft drinks, juices or alcoholic beverages
MI Paste is best used nightly in a custom fit tray. It can also be used by applying a small amount to your teeth, using a finger or cotton swab, and leaving undisturbed for 3 minutes. Once the time is up, you can spit out the paste, or swallow it, as it is completely safe to consume. Repeated use over time will lead to decreased sensitivity, stronger enamel and a healthy oral environment.
MI Paste is only available from your dentist. If you have any questions please see the MI website at:
