Abstract: The periodontal probe is one of the basic diagnostic tools being used for the assessment of periodontal conditions. There are various factors that influence the probing depths of periodontal pockets like the probing force which is important in relation to the tissue condition. In this study, a comparison has been made on two manual pressure sensitive probes - the Borodontic and the Hunter periodontal probes. There was no statistically significant difference found between the two probes. Clinical convenience and acceptability of patients suggest preference for the Hunter probe. However, further research is needed to compare the computer-aided probes with the manual-pressure sensitive periodontal probes.
