The purpose of this study was to determine patient compliance with suggested maintenance schedules. All patients eligible for maintenance therapy in a private periodontal practice were included. The study covered a period of 8 years. All patients had chronic inflammatory periodontal disease and had been eligible for at least 1 year of maintenance therapy before the close of data collection. A total of 961 patients were studied; only 16% complied with recommended maintenance schedules. Erratic compliance was found in 49% of the patients and 34% never reported for any maintenance therapy.
