Product Profile: MI Varnish™, MI Paste™, and MI Paste Plus™ by GC America

Enamel Enhancing Preventive System.

GC America now offers clinicians a complete preventive system designed to enhance and protect enamel, boost salivary fluoride levels, and release calcium and fluoride to tooth surfaces. The company calls it the MI Family, and it comprises MI Varnish with RECALDENT™, MI Paste, and MI Paste Plus.


MI Varnish with RECALDENT is designed to enhance enamel acid resistance and boost salivary fluoride levels through the release of high levels of fluoride and calcium into the oral cavity. Its unique RECALDENT formula contains casein phosphopeptides (CPP) and amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP)—both of which deliver calcium and phosphate. CPP binds to oral surfaces such as teeth, dentin, oral mucosa, and biofilm, while calcium and phosphate ions serve as the building blocks for healthy teeth. Finally, MI Varnish delivers bioavailable calcium and phosphate ions into saliva. The key benefits are:

  • No tackiness or stickiness once applied
  • Smooth, creamy texture upon application
  • Doesn’t change color
  • Patient-pleasing flavors of strawberry and mint
  • Comfortable film thickness, even with many applications


MI Paste and MI Paste Plus are the only professional-use products containing RECALDENT, a special milk-derived protein that has a unique ability to release bioavailable calcium and phosphate to tooth surfaces. MI Paste Plus offers the same benefits as MI Paste but is enhanced with a patented form of fluoride (900 ppm). The pastes are safe, easy to use in any setting, and available in five flavors: melon, mint, strawberry, tutti-frutti, and vanilla. The key benefits of these pastes are:

  • Relieve pain caused by dentinal hypersensitivity
  • Do not irritate dry mouths
  • Provide a topical coating for patients who experiencehypersensitivity
  • Helps minimize hypersensitivity
