We are excited to let our patients know that we utilize the Florida Probe® System as an advanced diagnostic tool for the detecting, diagnosing, tracking, and monitoring of periodontal disease. This technology catches periodontal disease in its earliest stage, often preventing early bone loss, surgery or serious complications from systemic disease (including death from cardiovascular disease or diabetes).
This system, which utilizes an automated, computerized probe, has proven to be more accurate and consistent than traditional methods of assessing periodontal disease and provides both you and the dental team with advanced information.
Dental research continues to solidify the link between periodontal (gum) disease and your overall health. Although periodontal disease is often difficult to detect in the early stages without a periodontal exam, it can be very easy and painless to treat. If not treated in a timely manner, periodontal disease has been associated with an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and low birth-weight babies.
Software automatically tracks good and bad changes in your periodontal health over time and creates a printable periodontal chart that visually illustrates these changes to enhance understanding.
You will leave with a clear picture of your gum health and a better understanding of your treatment options. Florida Probe®, helping to protect your beautiful smile for a lifetime!
