What is the Florida Probe System?
The Florida Probe Handpiece is no ordinary periodontal probe. In fact, you can measure periodontal pockets faster and more accurately with our constant-force, computerized probe. Instead of having to try and read the 1mm bands on a manual probe and estimate pocket depth, just bring the blue sleeve on the Florida Probe Handpiece down to the gingival margin, tap the footswitch, and your numerical data is recorded, with no guessing and no assistant needed to write down numbers.

How does it work?
The hygienist uses his/her existing probe and verbally transcribes the pocket depths, recession, bleeding, mobility and large restorations such as implants, crowns and bridges. The comprehensive examination is completed in under six minutes without cross-contamination or disrupting other team member’s tasks. This allows the clinician to focus on patient education and keeps the patient actively engaged throughout the examination. Additionally, cross-contamination is eliminated as the hygienist does not need to touch the keyboard or mouse to activate the technology.
What is Voiceworks?
VoiceWorks is a lightweight headset that uses the clinician's own voice, which is recognized by creating a voice file with a Florida Probe specialist.1 Voice files are extremely simple to create and completed in five minutes.
