Interventions for the maintenance of the dentition in patients treated for periodontal disease

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.

This is a protocol.
