What is the Florida Probe System?
The Florida Probe System with FP32 Perio Software is how we do perio. Our computerized probe (FP Handpiece) and Footswitch work with our FP32 perio software to transform your computer into a computerized probing station!
What Can You Do With It?
You can Probe, Chart, Educate and Motivate your patients to accept needed treatment with this all-inclusive System.
The System acts as your computerized assistant for the periodontal exam – only one examiner required. This ultimately increases office productivity, because you won’t need other staff members to chart while you are probing.
The System’s constant-force, computerized probe allows measurements to be consistent between examiners who likely probe with different amounts of force (which could mean different readings for the same patient). Our probe’s precision is 0.2 mm., which also improves the accuracy of measurements and assists the clinician in determining the correct diagnosis and follow-up for the patient.
Instead of having to try and read the thin bands on a regular periodontal probe and estimate pocket depth, just bring the blue sleeve of the FP Handpiece down to the gingival margin, tap the Footswitch, and your numerical data is recorded. There is also no need to say the number – the System does this for both the patient’s benefit as well as your own (sound can also be turned off or customized).
The exam can be customized to record all or some of the following information: dentition, medical history, risk assessment, recession and hyperplasia, gingival attachment, pocket depth, bleeding, suppuration, furcation, plaque, mobility, MGJ, and diagnosis.
The Florida Probe System provides exceptional clinical and legal documentation. Use the resulting periodontal chart to create a “treatment map” for scaling and root planing, subgingival antimicrobials or even laser use. When combined with the patient diagnosis sheet, the duo becomes a legal record and informed consent to protect your practice.
Increased Patient Treatment Acceptance
The real value of the Florida Probe System is in its ability to increase patient acceptance of periodontal therapies for a disease that has few typical or motivating (pain, aesthetics) symptoms.
Generate New Revenue for Your Practice
Did you know that just 1 more quadrant of scaling and root planning acceptance per day at $250, working a 4-day week, adds $50,000 per year to your bottom line? This is only the beginning: 3-month re-care, adjunctive therapies and diagnostic fees add to this hygiene-driven increase in production. This means an incredible return on investment opportunity. The typical practice will increase hygiene and perio production by $10,000 per month.
