An explorer is used to examine the surface of the tooth for defects such as caries, cavities, and calculus (otherwise known as tartar, a hardened form of dental plaque). The thin, sharp tips are effective for maneuvering in the the mouth, as well as removing small bits of debris.
The #23 tip, a type of sickle probe, is also known as a Shepard's hook. It features a round curvature, and therefore, a longer working tip. This allows it to be useful for deeper exploration of cavities or restorations. The #17 tip is more angular in shape and shorter, used for examining and removing debris from in between teeth. This double-ended instrument provides the user with the convenience of essentially having 2 instruments readily available.
