Probes Periodontal C
SMS Probe is a Diagnostic instrument. It is used to check the depth of a periodontal pocket vertically or horizontally.Dental Probe C Single Ended 3-6-9-12mm marking
Probes Periodontal X2
Dental Probe X2 Single Ended 3-6-9-12mm marking
Probe Periodontal Fig 1 (William)
SMS Williams probe is a dental instrument used to assess periodontal pocket depths, gingival bleeding, and anatomy configurations. When compared to other first generation periodontal probes, the Williams minimizes reading confusion since it does not have the 4mm and 6mm markings.
GoldMan Periodontal Fox
SMS Goldman-Fox probe is a dental instrument used to assess periodontal pocket depths, gingival bleeding, and anatomy configurations. When compared to other first generation periodontal probes, the Goldman-Fox has fewer markings which minimize confusion during reading, but the flat shank doesn’t allow easy access to tight fibrotic pockets.
Periodontal Fig O (Michigan)
SMS Michigan probe is a dental instrument used to assess periodontal pocket depths, gingival bleeding, and anatomy configurations. When compared to other first generation periodontal probes, the Michigan is not used to measure deeper pockets since the markings end at 8mm. Markings are at 3, 6 and 8mm.
Periodontal WHO (PSR)
SMS WHO probe is a periodontic tool used to assess pocket depths, gingival bleeding, and anatomy configurations. The probe was designed for two purposes:
- Measurement of pocket depth
- Detection of sub gingival calculus.
Used in the assessment of CPITN (community periodontal index for treatment needs)
Periodontal UNC 15
SMS Probes are smoothly finished black markings, which will not chip, flake or fade.
- 15mm long and markings are at each mm
- Millimeter marking at
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 millimeters

A periodontal probe is an instrument in dentistry commonly used in the dental armamentarium. It is usually long, thin, and blunted at the end. Periodontal probes are used to locate, measure, and mark pockets, as well as determine their course on individual tooth surfaces. Periodontal probes are used to measure the depth of pockets and to determine their configuration.
The standard periodontal probe is a tapered, rod-like instrument calibrated in millimeters, with a blunt rounded tip. A probe is an assessment instruments like periodontal probes are used to determine health of periodontal tissues, tooth anatomy, and texture of tooth surfaces.
Types of Calibrated Periodontal probe
- Marquis color-coded probe
- UNC – 15 probe
- University of Michigan ‘o’ probe, with Williams markings
- Michigan ‘o’ probe
- World health organization (WHO) probe.
- Naber’s furcation probe
Calibrated probes have, blunt, rod shaped working ends the may be circular or rectangular in cross-action.
