If you are a central Texas patient seeking to purchase earplugs, ear buds or hearing aids, you will require complete hearing protection that is appropriately fitted and secure. The optimal solution offered at our offices in Stephenville and Brownwood, is custom earmolds developed to match the distinctive contours of your ears.
Why Opt For Custom Earmolds?
Earmolds are flexible and soft, plastic or acrylic products that are placed in the ear canal or concha of the ear. Due to everyone's ear having a distinct size and shape, custom earmolds are engineered to mimic the unique anatomy of your ear, providing a secure fit.
Our certified audiologist will take a special silicone material and create an exact impression with it, of your ear canals and exterior portion of your ears. Such molds may be purposed to produce specialized devices seen in various activities and job professions. (e.g., medical personnel stethoscopes, pilot headphones, newscaster earpieces, etc.). Anyone subjected to loud noises or who prefers to listen to music through mobile devices, are benefited.
Types of Custom Earmolds?
Custom earmolds are typically produced from wax, foam, or other comparable substances. Some regular users of custom earmolds include swimmers, race car drivers, musicians, pilots, and people who hunt. Personalized swim plugs block water from entering the ears and help protect surfers, swimmers, and others who are repeatedly in or around water - and can prevent ear infections that are commonly associated with such activities.
