Your pediatric dentist in Sugar Land, Texas recommended MI paste for your child’s smile. What is it, and why should you use it? Dr. Nasha Hunter answers all your questions about the product on our latest blog post.
What is MI Paste?
When it comes to taking care of your teeth, there are certain nutrients and minerals you should not be without. While saliva does provide some of the minerals needed, saliva alone will not deliver the minerals needed. MI paste is a tooth creme that should be applied daily to ensure your teeth are receiving essential minerals including calcium and phosphate. MI Paste Plus contains the same minerals as the regular paste with the addition of fluoride. The pastes are water based and sugar free, and come in five to choose from: melon, mint, strawberry, tutti frutti and vanilla.
What are the Benefits?
As a pediatric dentist in Sugar Land, Texas, Dr. Hunter recommends MI paste to help relieve tooth sensitivity without irritating or drying out the mouth. Whether you use it only before or after a cleaning, whitening, orthodontics, or for everyday use, MI paste is safe and effective. MI Paste Plus helps to enhance the release of minerals without forming calculus, and is an effective way to ensure your tooth enamel is receiving proper amounts of fluoride.
Are There Side Effects?
MI Paste does contain small amounts of milk derived protein that may not be suitable for those who suffer from allergies to casein. If your child is sensitive to casein, please tell our office staff.
