The Florida probe is sometimes referred as the dentist’s computerised assistant.
The Florida Probe is a digital probe used to check the health and status of your gums. The probe has a computerized peridontal probing and charting system, which helps your dentist to get an accurate analysis of your gums. The report generated by the probe helps patients to understand the results of the analysis of their gums. This probe is designed to move around pockets in the mouth. When it finds a deep pocket, it alerts your dentist with a 'beep'. The results of the Florida Probe can be considered as an official unbiased opinion and help in patient education.
