Eamoulds / Taking an Impression

Taking an impression of the ear is a simple and painless procedure. A small foam block is placed in the ear canal to act as a seal. An impression is then taken by injecting a silicon material into the ear with a special syringe. This is left to set for a few minutes and then removed.   We will either book a return appointment at the time of taking the impression or you will be contacted to arrange an appropriate appointment type, date and time when the ear moulds return.
