Creating Custom Earpieces
Getting a custom earpiece made is a simple, quick process that can be done in a 30-minute appointment. First, your hearing specialist will examine your ear canals and insert a very small piece of cotton or foam. Then we use special tools and silicone to make impressions in the shapes of your ear canals. Once the impressions are made, they are sent to a manufacturer, where the products you ordered are crafted specifically for your ears. All of our custom earpieces come with a 90-day remake warranty.
Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is caused by exposure to excessive loud noise, which damages the delicate hair cells in the inner ear over time. Simply using quality hearing protection devices when you are around loud noises can prevent NIHL.
While any method for protecting your hearing is better than none at all, many generic earplugs and headphones don’t offer a very effective defense against NIHL. If you regularly participate in loud activities that require hearing protection, it’s important to invest in custom earplugs to truly protect yourself from risks of hearing loss. Some examples of people who benefit from custom earplugs include:
- Hunters and shooters
- Industrial workers
- Concert goers
If you’re one of the many people who need custom hearing protection, schedule an appointment at Central Oregon ENT for a custom earplug fitting right away.
