A dental explorer or probe is probably the most used examination instrument in your kit and has a sharp, pointed end that will help you to explore the surface of a tooth while you use it.

Dental explorers come in a variety of different styles and shapes. Each dentist tend to have their own favourite explorer because each one confers different levels of tactile information with the point.

At Critical Dental one of our best sellers is the common number 23 dental explorer which you might also hear called the shepherd’s hook for obvious reasons! We also have a few other kinds of dental explorer including the 3CH also known as the cowhorn or pigtail. Using the number 17 explorer, dental hygienists and dentists can access the interproximal spaces between the teeth for signs of gum disease. We also stock a handy explorer which combines the number 17 with number 23, having two different heads on opposite ends of the tool. You may have heard it called the Wilken’s Explorer.

Every dental explorer listed in our catalogue is manufactured from medical grade stainless steel, meaning it can be sterilised repeatedly and still retain its high quality and durability. In fact, we’re so confident about our Surgery Selections probes, that should you not be satisfied for any reason, we offer a no quibble money back guarantee.

At Critical Dental we have a range of dental tools and products in stock to suit every dental professional. Whether you prefer a 23 or a 17, we have the explorer for you in our online store. We offer a wide range of products and you will certainly find our prices to be highly competitive. Our delivery is fast, and our customer service is friendly. Give Critical Dental a try and you will not be disappointed.
