As long as the growth rate ; activity level are normal, relax. Think balanced week not balanced meal. ...Read more
I guess that perioprotect would need to be used 3 x's a day since 3 meals. I think bacteria reforms after one hour. So, what is its real value?
Local control: It's similar to when you have an infection, you don't have to take antibiotics every hour in order for it to be effective.
