Mi paste vs Prevident

Hi guys in my office we love MI paste plus with fluoride. Some dental practitioners prefer provident due to the higher concentration of fluoride. Which do you guys prefer? I have personally seen many incipient caries completely remineralize with MI paste plus.

I like MI Paste. It is made with milk proteins so you have to be careful with lactose intolerant patients is all.

I guess it would depend why you are prescribing it. Is it for demineralization or caries prevention (they do kind of overlap). The office I worked at prescribed president exclusively for caries prevention. It has great flavor and the office would buy it in bulk and sell it to patients for $9. We had really great compliance because we offered it in office.

Kara, I went to a CE provided by makers of MI Paste and when asked if lactose intolerance was a contraindication for use was told only if it is a true casein allergy. Now I’m concerned as I’ve told others the same. Do you know? The person did not regularly do the CE’s so she could have been misinformed.

I also like MI Paste and patients seem to be compliant with it, flavor makes a big difference.
