I have found two ingredients used in dental care that include milk protein.
PROSPEC tm MI paste used in polishing
RECALDENT is prssent in trident gum, and in professional stength and can be used in dental products as well.

Always inform your dentist of a milk allergy!

This is unrelated to your post, Susan, but as I visited my dentist recently i thought I'd share. We had a conversation about 'natural toothpaste'---I've been switching to natural cosmetic products and cleaning supplies gradually and wanted to know what he thought about this brand of toothpaste I bought (Jason--with tea tree oil). He read the ingredients and except for the fact that it doesn't have fluoride (or petroleum-based detergents) and that it has ingredients like tea tree and clove oil (they're supposed to be antibacterial) he said that the composition looked pretty much the same as regular toothpaste. So he said that if I'm not allergic to clove oil (which I'm not) it should be fine. He said that young children, people who have trouble with tooth decay, and older people ought to brush with a toothpaste with fluoride in it but in my case it wouldn't be necessary. He did say, though, that he thought that an economical natural toothpaste would simply be baking soda (if I rinse my mouth out well enough). I thought i'd put that out there in case anyone has trouble finding allergen-free toothpaste----I didn't realize that baking soda was that good of an option.

Thought I'd bump this thread for those of us who are due to see the dentist.

Quote:

Calcium and Phosphate:

Contains RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP). Casein Phosphopeptide (CPP) are natural occurring molecules which are able to bind calcium and phosphate ions and stabilize Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP).2, 3
RECALDENT™ (CPP-ACP) is a special milk-derived protein that can help replace lost minerals in teeth, make them stronger and helps protect them from decay and erosion.1, 3 ...

to add to my previous post---i talked to the hygeniest about natural toothpastes the last time I was in and she wondered whether it would be a good idea for me---regular products go through testing for abrasiveness. My teeth are awful (spotty, irregular enamel probably from antibiotics that they don't give to kids anymore for this very reason) . . .so she was concerned. but the dentist thought that the natural product i brought in is fine . . . it is hard to know what to do!

I always buy toothpaste with ingredients listed. For the kids thats "little bear toddler toothpaste" and crest for us adults. Not all toothpastes list ingredients so really who knows what is in there.
