Do you need ear impressions?
With more than 12 years of experience and over 2000 impressions taken, our ear molds are of the highest quality. We do ear impressions for custom In-the-ear hearing aids. The mold will take on the exact shape and form of your ear to ensure your hearing aid will be a snug and comfortable fit in the ear.
When taking the ear impression an auto block (foam tip) will be placed just past the second bend of your ear canal which is approximately 12mm deep into the ear cavity. Impression material will then be inserted in the ear canal using an impression syringe, the impression material is made from a special medical grade silicone. The material is oil based to ensure the finished product will not stick to the canal walls or outer ear.
An impression will take approximately 2-3minutes to harden, this happens naturally when the material makes contact with the air around it and the warmth from your body, after the silicone has set our ear clinician will carefully remove the impression from the ear. The impression will then be cleaned, cut and sent off to the Audiologist of your choice.
