Have you ever had a cavity and had to get a filling? Pretty much “stinks”, right?
Well, what if I told you there is a way you can “repair” a cavity? Or better yet, PREVENT a cavity from happening in the first place? Well, there is!
MI PASTE PLUS! It’s fabulous! It’s not a toothpaste but rather a cream that you use after brushing, flossing and doing your whole “bedtime routine”. You only need about a pea-sized amount, you rub it onto the area of concern, swish it around a little and that’s it! Super easy! Please note that MI Paste is available only through prescription and may be obtained through your dentist.
You should also note, that if you have a full blown cavity that is through the enamel (the first layer of your tooth), you will absolutely need a filling. Once decay is through the enamel, the only way to repair it is with a filling or crown. But, if it is a new area and NOT yet through the enamel, it can be remineralized with the MI Paste. Of course, you must be compliant and use it as directed every night.
If you do not have a beginning cavity, you can still benefit from MI Paste. It actually will buffer your saliva, making the oral cavity less acidic, which actually helps to PREVENT cavities! Again, it should be added to your nightly home care regimen. How awesome is that?
