What is MI Paste?
MI Paste is a water-based, sugar-free cream that comes in a tube-like toothpaste. When applied directly to your teeth, it can help condition, protect and rebuild your teeth’s surface. MI Paste uses calcium and phosphate to replenish these minerals in your teeth and strengthen them. MI paste works best if used with fluoride. Typically it should be used immediately after brushing or a fluoride rinse.
How do you use MI Paste?
- Squeeze a pea size amount out of the tube and lick it. Spread the paste around your mouth with your tongue. Salivation is normal and actually beneficial. Swish the paste in between your teeth and try not to spit for 3 minutes. Do not eat or drink for at least 30 minutes.
- Use a custom-made teeth-whitening tray. You do not need to whiten your teeth to apply MI paste, but if you are whitening your teeth, use the paste after whitening. Use a cotton swap to spread a pea size amount of paste evenly around each tray. Wear the tray for at least 3 minutes. Remove the tray and spread the remaining paste around your teeth with your tongue.Squeeze a pea size amount out of the tube and lick it. Spread the paste around your mouth
There are many different fluoride mouth rinses available at pharmacies and grocery stores. I recommend a rinse of 0.05% fluoride concentration that is alcohol-free. Buying a higher concentration of rinse is not necessary because frequency of use is the most important point. I would rather you buy a lower concentration of rinse and use it often. Be sure to keep the rinse out of the reach of children. your tongue. Salivation is normal and actually beneficial. Swish the paste in between your teeth and try not to spit for 3 minutes. Do not eat or drink for at least 30 minutes.
