Constant Probing Force:
The Handpiece delivers a standard 15 grams of pressure to provide the ideal pressure for accuracy and patient comfort. The probe records each measurement to 0.2mm accuracy and makes comparisons to previous data “on the fly” to spot change quicker and more accurately.
With the old fashioned dip stick perio probe we are always guessing. Is it over the balck line or just on the line. Is that a three or if it crosses the line is it a four? And then it depends on how hard you push. The Florida probe eliminates the guess work, the “push pressure” is always the same and the digital readout is accurate to 0.2 mm.
