We also create custom earmolds to help protect the ears from hearing loss. People who have jobs in noisy locations, such as airports or construction sites, benefit from custom-fit sound plugs to prevent damage caused by noise exposure. Swimmers need earplugs to prevent water blockage, which can cause temporary hearing loss. There are certain earplugs for hunters that protect the ears from the loudness of gunfire while allowing safe sounds to be heard naturally. Musician plugs maintain the integrity of the music playing while reducing sounds to safe levels.
Others who may be at less risk for occupational hearing loss can still benefit from having custom-molded ear equipment. For example, doctors may have custom molded stethoscopes and office workers may benefit from custom earpieces for their phones. The purpose of these custom fittings is to provide comfort for the patient.
Our goal is to care for our patients’ whole hearing health. Please contact us to learn more about earmolds and hearing protection.
