GDC Double End Probes Unc 15 / Screening Probe #1 (PCP15/11.5)

GDC Double End Probes Unc 15 / Screening Probe #1 (PCP15/11.5) is a dental instrument used by dentists and dental hygienists for periodontal probing and screening. It consists of a double-ended design with different measurements on each end. The “Unc 15” marking refers to the first end of the probe.UNC15 Probe has markings mm1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15 and Screening Probe has markings mm 3.5-5.5-8.5-11.5 inscribed onto the head of these instruments for accuracy and readability.

The “Unc” stands for “universal” and indicates that this end is a universal curette. The number “15” indicates the specific design and size of the working end. In this case, it represents a curved working end with a diameter of 1.5 millimeters. The universal curette is commonly used for subgingival (below the gumline) scaling and root planing procedures. It can help remove plaque, and calculus (tartar), and smooth the root surface.

The second end of the probe is labeled as “Screening Probe #1” or “PCP15/11.5.” This end is specifically designed for periodontal screening and measuring pocket depths. “PCP” stands for “Periodontal Community Probe,” and the number “15” indicates the working end’s diameter, which is 1.5 millimeters. The “11.5” represents the marking increments on the probe, indicating the millimeter markings from the tip of the probe to its base. These markings help measure the depth of periodontal pockets, which can be an indicator of gum disease or other oral health conditions.

Features
  • Double-ended design: This probe has two different ends, allowing for versatility in dental procedures. One end is a universal curette (Unc 15), while the other end is a screening probe (PCP15/11.5).
  • Universal curette (Unc 15): The first end of the probe features a universal curette design. This curved working end with a diameter of 1.5 millimeters is commonly used for subgingival scaling and root planing procedures. It helps in the removal of plaque and calculus from the root surfaces.
  • Screening probe (PCP15/11.5): The second end of the probe is specifically designed for a periodontal screening and measuring pocket depths. It has a diameter of 1.5 millimeters and is marked with increments (11.5) to measure the depth of periodontal pockets accurately.
  • Periodontal probing: The probe allows dentists and dental hygienists to assess the health of the gums and measure pocket depths. This information is crucial for diagnosing and monitoring gum disease or other oral health conditions.
  • High-quality construction: The GDC Double End Probes Unc 15 / Screening Probe #1 is typically made of high-quality stainless steel or other durable materials. This ensures its longevity and resistance to corrosion, enabling repeated use in dental settings.
  • Accurate measurements: The probe is marked with clear millimeter increments, facilitating precise measurements of pocket depths. This helps in tracking changes in gum health over time and planning appropriate treatment interventions.
  • Ergonomic handle: The probe’s handle is designed for comfortable gripping and control during dental procedures. This ergonomic feature allows for better maneuverability and reduces hand fatigue during extended use.
