The Florida Probe was a blessing for our patients and for our practice. It is a very reliable probe, technically. Generally, the periodontal patient does not listen to their dentist or Hygienist, but they listens to the voice of Florida Probe and watches the clear graphics showing pocket depth, bleeding, plaque, etc. After a Florida Probe session, patients will come back with dramatically improved oral hygiene, because they finally understand the dynamics of plaque and inflammation and they ask for treatment. The real value for the patient is that because they understands their problem earlier and better, they acts (prevents bone loss) earlier.
