Impressions can be taken for custom hearing aids, hearing aid moulds, custom made in ear monitors and hearing protection. The process involves placing a sponge stopper inside your ear canal. A silicon material is introduced into your ear to take the shape- this takes around 5 minutes to set and is absolutely pain free! . Once the material has set, it is slowly and carefully removed, this provides the exact shape and size of an your ear so that it can be sent away to manufacture whatever you require- The perfect shape for you!
Open Jaw Impressions
Open jaw impressions involve the same procedure as a standard ear impression (explained above), however during the taking of the impression your jaw remains slightly opened, using bite blocks shown in the image. When your jaw is open it can alter the shape of the ear canal.
