With its long, thin and blunt tip, it measures the depth of the pocket around the tooth in order to establish the state of health of the periodontium. The instrument has marks engraved on its head/tip for greater precision and legibility.
Inspection of the implants must be carried out with care. A gentle probing force must be used so that the tip of the probe does not penetrate the junctional epithelium and connective tissue all the way to the bone. In healthy tissue, the probe will stop at the coronal level of the connective tissue. In the presence of inflammation, the probe tip may penetrate close to the bone.
