Introduction: Supportive periodontal therapy (SPT) is an essential phase of periodontal disease prevention and therapy. The objectives of this review are: a) to determine the different aspects from SPT; b) to know the value of SPT in long term results after active periodontal therapy; c) to review the patient, the tooth and the site related risk factors; d) to establish clinical protocols for managing the different situations. Materials, Methods and results: For the preparation of this work, 46 scientific articles have been analyzed the MEDLINE and Cochrane databases have been used to make the search. Discussion: The objectives of SPT are to prevent the initiation or recurrence of periodontal diseases. Independently of the type of treatment, the clinical outcomes won't improve if we don't perform a professional SPT. To establish the appointment intervals and the sites to be treated, we have to evaluate the risk factors associated to the patient, the tooth and the site.
