Biotype Probes by Dr. Rasperini & Dr. Testori

Hu-Friedy now offers a reliable, high quality solution to gingival biotype evaluation.

The Colorvue Biotype Probe system makes it easy and painless to quickly classify your patients’ biotype as thin, medium or thick, thus aiding you in your selection of the proper treatment protocol.

POINTS OF PERFORMANCE:

  • Colorvue Biotype Probe tips are designed for up to 30 uses*

  • Colorvue Biotype Probes fit in Hu-Friedy’s ergonomic, Satin Steel handle that can be reused or recycled

  • The resin tips are safe and gentle to use on all patients

  • Each colored tip is also numbered to aid in differentiation between colors


INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

Probe 1 Probe 2 Probe 3
Using the white probe fi rst, insert it in the gingival sulcus with < 30g of pressure. If it is visible, meaning you can see the color through the gingival tissue, the biotype is thin.
If the white is not visible, use the green probe in the same manner. If the color is visible, it is a medium biotype.
If the green isn’t seen through the gingival tissue, use the blue probe. If the blue is the only color visible through the gingival tissue, the biotype is thick. If no color, even the blue, is visible, the biotype will be very thick.

Biotype Probes available: as Starter Kit including 3 handles and 12 tips or single tips (12 tips/unit).
