A periodontal probe is an instrument in dentistry commonly used in the dental armamentarium. It is used for exploring a wound and usually long, thin, and blunted at the end. The primary purpose of a periodontal probe is to measure pocket depths around a tooth in order to establish the state of health of the periodontium. We offer many different types of periodontal probes, and each has its own manner of indicating measurements on the tip of the instrument. e.g. AMP No.3, AMP No.5, No.11 (Briault), No.12 (Weston), No. 5/6, ODU 11/12, No. 6/37, No. 2/54, No. 9/54
