MI Varnish™ with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP)

MI Varnish™ with RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP)
Topical fluoride varnish with calcium and phosphate


In 2012 GC America Inc launched MI Varnish™, a 5% sodium fluoride varnish incorporating RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP). MI VarnishTM releases calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions into the tooth, with studies showing that this enhanced formulation inhibits enamel demineralisation to a greater extent than conventional fluoride varnishes. MI VarnishTM has also been found to deliver greater fluoride contact time than gel, foams and other fluoride varnishes.

The scientific research which led to the development of Recaldent™ began in the 1980s. Over 20 years, researchers at the Melbourne Dental School (University of Melbourne), led by Professor Eric Reynolds, investigated the casein protein in milk until they were able to identify and isolate the CPP-ACP complex. Research in the Oral Health CRC and its predecessor, the CRC for Oral Health Science, has focused on new ways of using the therapeutic and preventive properties of Recaldent™.

GC America’s products MI VarnishTM , MI Paste™ and MI Paste Plus™ provide a comprehensive system. If a patient has a moderate to high caries risk assessment, use MI VarnishTM in-office. The dental professional can then instruct the patient to continue their daily care at-home with regular use of MI Paste or MI Paste Plus to boost calcium and phosphate. 

MI VarnishTM is available in 50-unit dose boxes. It is strawberry flavoured and dries smooth and clear.
