Dental probes are instruments used by dentists and dental hygienists to examine the health of teeth and gums during dental examinations. They typically consist of a long, slender handle with a fine, pointed tip at one end. Here’s how they’re used and what they’re for:

  • Examining teeth and gums: Dental probes are used to gently explore the surfaces of teeth and the gum line to detect signs of dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, and periodontal pockets (spaces between the teeth and gums where bacteria can accumulate).
  • Measuring pocket depth: Dentists use probes to measure the depth of periodontal pockets, which helps assess the health of the gums and diagnose gum disease. Deeper pockets can indicate advanced gum disease, while shallow pockets are typically a sign of healthy gums.
  • Identifying areas of concern: By running the probe along the surfaces of teeth and gums, dentists can identify areas of decay, calculus (tartar), or other abnormalities that may require further examination or treatment.
  • Assessing tooth mobility: Dental probes can also be used to assess the mobility of teeth, which can indicate issues such as gum disease, bone loss, or trauma.

Dental probes come in various shapes and sizes, with different tip designs suited for specific purposes. They are essential tools in dental practice, helping dentists and hygienists diagnose and treat dental conditions effectively.
