MI Varnish™ with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP)

Bioavailable calcium and phosphate for an enhanced fluoride varnish treatment

GC America Inc. offers MI Varnish™, a 5% sodium fluoride varnish with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) Technology. The unique RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) Technology delivers bioavailable calcium and phosphate for an enhanced fluoride varnish treatment. MI Varnish enhances enamel acid resistance and contributes to high salivary calcium and phosphate levels. The sodium fluoride (NaF) along with the calcium and phosphate in MI Varnish makes it the clinical choice for the general practitioner, their staff and their patients.

MI Varnish is for patients that are at risk for caries. Fluoride is an important component along with calcium and phosphate in the fight against demineralization and caries. MI Varnish helps to make fluoride plus calcium and phosphate more bioavailable to gain that extra boost of protection.

Comprehensive In-Office and At-Home Treatment Plans

MI Varnish joins MI Paste™ and MI Paste Plus™ in providing a comprehensive system for the dental professional team. MI Paste and MI Paste Plus (900 ppm fluoride) are one-of-a-kind products that release calcium and phosphate minerals and enrich saliva. RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) is a special milk-derived protein that can be used safely and effectively several times daily.

If a patient has a moderate to high caries risk assessment, use MI Varnish in-office and then instruct the patient to continue their daily care at-home with regular use of MI Paste or MI Paste Plus to enhance the calcium and phosphate bioavailability. MI Varnish, used in conjunction with MI Paste and MI Paste Plus, results in a well-rounded treatment plan for strong, healthy teeth.

MI Varnish is available in a 50-unit dose box. The unique unit dose containers are easy to open and contain enough material for a typical full-mouth application. An application of MI Varnish is smooth and dries clear while the fresh strawberry and fresh mint flavors are appealing to both adults and children.

MI Varnish is the only fluoride varnish featuring RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) Technology for the treatment and relief of hypersensitive teeth.

Key Takeaways

• High fluoride, calcium, and phosphate ions released due to the RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) Technology*

• Greater fluoride contact time and increased calcium and phosphate bioavailability than gels, foams,
and varnishes*

• Does not immediately clump on exposure to saliva, allowing for ease-of-use and longer working time

• Reduces sensitivity by sealing and penetrating into dentinal tubules effectively blocking out external stimuli*
