Tooth Mousse – topical creme with bio-available calcium and phosphate

Tooth MousseTooth Mousse – topical creme with bio-available calcium and phosphate

For use by or under the supervision of a dental professional in the recommended indications.

GC Tooth Mousse is a water based creme containing RECALDENT™* (CPP-ACP: Casein Phosphopeptide – Amorphous Calcium Phosphate). When CPP-ACP is applied in the oral environment, it will bind to biofilms, plaque, bacteria, hydroxyapatite and soft tissue localising bio-available calcium and phosphate.

Important: saliva will enhance the effectiveness of CPP-ACP and the flavour will help stimulate saliva flow. The longer CPP-ACP and saliva are maintained in the mouth, the more effective the result.

A topical paste containing bio-available calcium and phosphate

  1. Provides extra protection for teeth.
  2. Helps neutralize acid challenges from acidogenic bacteria in plaque.
  3. Helps neutralize acid challenges from other internal and external acid sources.

Contraindications

RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) is derived from milk casein. Do not use this material on patients with a proven or suspected milk protein allergy and/or with a sensitivity or allergy to benzoate preservatives.
