How to Find the Right Dentist for You
CAUTION: People with MILK PROTEIN allergies should NOT use this or any other product containing Recaldent as Recaldent is derived from milk.
NOTE: MI paste is NOT a toothpaste and should not be applied like toothpaste i.e. do not brush your teeth with it. MI paste is applied to the tooth with either a finger or can be applied in either a custom whitening tray if you have one) or a boil and bite tray. Mi paste can also be professionally applied by the hygienist with a polishing cup during your prophylaxis (tooth cleaning). Recommended to leave on the tooth for 3-5 minutes and then expectorate (spit out). For maximum benefit, do NOT rinse with water after application.
What is MI Paste and how does it work?
GC MI Paste contains RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) which is made from a natural protein extracted from milk. DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO MILK PRODUCTS. RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) acts in a dual manner, by providing a source of calcium and phosphate, while also supplying a soluble format for delivery of these essential minerals to the tooth surface. MI Paste comes in individual 40g tubes in five delicious flavors.
MI Paste could be helpful
- If you are experiencing any form of tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is a common side effect
- Immediately following bleaching for tooth whitening
- After your teeth have been professionally cleaned and polished
- If you suffer from dry mouth, which could be a side effect of prescription or non prescription medicines.
- If you are susceptible to dehydration from sporting activities or outdoor work.
- If you currently have orthodontic bands or brackets or have just had them removed
- If you are pregnant and your mouth acid levels are higher than normal
How to use it
GC MI Paste can be applied into a pre-formed tray and placed in the mouth. Alternatively squeeze a small amount of GC MI Paste from the tube onto your finger and apply it over the surfaces of the teeth. If you are in the middle of orthodontic treatment, apply MI Paste around the areas where the bands and brackets are attached to the teeth.
How often should I use it?
In most situations you will apply it after brushing your teeth, both morning and night. If starting tooth whitening apply GC MI Paste immediately following each whitening session. When undergoing orthodontic treatment apply GC MI Paste twice daily for the entire time the bands or brackets are attached to your teeth. If you regularly suffer from dry mouth you may need to use MI Paste more often. Please discuss this with your dentist.
The smile says it all
These days more and more people are whitening their teeth, either as a one step procedure at their dentist or under supervision at home. Whichever method is used, the whitening process removes proteins and moisture from the teeth – in the same way as shampooing strips your hair of essential oils and nutrients. So, just as you put conditioner on your hair to restore its vitality, you need to replenish minerals and nutrients in your teeth after whitening. Fortunately, there is now a product that does just this. GC MI Paste has been specially formulated to nourish teeth before and after the whitening process, thereby helping to achieve greater vitality and more esthetically pleasing appearance. If you want to obtain the best results after whitening, then GC MI Paste is an important consideration.
Do I need to continue using MI Paste after whitening?
The teeth may look or feel dry immediately after whitening. Sometimes they will also feel sensitive, so we recommend you continue the daily GC MI Paste application for a week after the final whitening procedure, to add minerals to your teeth, to complement the new whiter look and to give them that beautiful vital appearance.
Whitening in the dental office
If you plan to have the whitening carried out in the dental office the procedure can often be completed in just one hour. Your dentist may recommend a daily application of GC MI Paste before whitening. In this case, make sure you do not apply it on the day of your appointment.
After the whitening procedure you will be asked to apply GC MI Paste over the whitened surface and continue a once or twice daily application for one week.
What about at home?
Home whitening is not as concentrated as in the dental office, so after each whitening procedure apply GC MI Paste over the same area as the whitening gel was placed and leave undisturbed for 3 minutes. Then either wash off or leave to slowly dissipate. Be sure to follow the instructions as set out by the manufacturer of the whitening gel before applying MI Paste. Once the whitening treatment has been fully completed, continue a daily application of MI Paste for another seven days..
DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO MILK PRODUCTS.
Is MI Paste safe to swallow?
Yes. The main active ingredient of MI Paste is derived from milk casein and like milk and cheese, is safe. Products containing RECALDENT™ (CPPACP) should not be consumed by people with milk protein allergies. RECALDENT™(CPP-ACP) is digestible by people with lactose intolerance.
Do I need to wash it off?
This is a matter of preference. For the maximum benefit, leave it on the teeth as long as possible. The minimum recommended application time is three minutes. You can then rinse or simply wipe any remaining cream from the teeth.
Does MI Paste contain fluoride?
No. However if your dentist recommends that you need an additional fluoride treatment program, you can safely use both MI Paste and fluoride products at the same time.
About RECALDENT (CPP-ACP)
GC MI Paste contains RECALDENT™(CPP-ACP) This technology has a unique ability to deliver bio-available calcium and phosphate when they are needed most. GC MI Paste binds calcium and phosphate to tooth surfaces, plaque and surrounding soft tissue. The RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) technology releases the calcium and phosphate when a patient’s saliva is acid challenged by the normal digestive process.

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, minimize tooth sensitivity 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 contains RECALDENT (CPP-ACP) which 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.
GC MI Paste Indications:
GC MI Paste is intended for treatment of teeth whitening sensitivity and root planning and scaling during professional dental cleanings.
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).
RECALDENT (CPP-ACP) is a special milk-derived protein that can help replace lost minerals in teeth, make them stronger and helps protect them from decay and erosion.
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.1, 3
Under acidic conditions, RECALDENT (CPP-ACP) releases calcium and phosphate ions into tooth enamel4.
Supplies calcium and phosphate needed for patients with poor saliva flow. This situation can be further augmented by elevating the level of fluoride.
