Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To determine the effect of supportive periodontal treatment (SPT) in the maintenance of the dentition this review will:

Primary objective

1) compare the effect of conventional dental care (provided by a general dental practitioner or specialist) or no SPT versus SPT (provided by the periodontist);

Secondary objective

2) compare the effect of providing SPT at different time intervals (3, 6 or 12 months);
3) compare the effect of different types of mechanical root debridement as part of SPT;
4) compare the effect of providing oral hygiene reinforcement as an adjunct to SPT.
