Getting Your Impressions Done
1.The process can be a bit odd for a first-timer. The audiologist will first check the health of your ear and ensure that there isn’t an excess buildup of earwax that can prevent a good ear impression.
2.The audiologist will place a cotton swab into your ears to ensure the silicone mold doesn’t enter too deep into your ear canal. Make sure your bite block is around 2.5cm (1 inch). Relax and let the audiologist do his/her thing. It can be a strange experience!
3.Having your mouth open for a long period of time while the impressions are drying naturally can cause some drooling. Be prepared by having a tissue paper handy!
4.Just relax! Try not to move or talk while the impressions are being taken. The quality of the impressions strongly depend on this! If you feel that your impressions were not taken well, don’t be afraid to ask for them to be taken a second time.
