Introduction to Impressioning
Earmolds are manufactured from impressions of portions of the pinna and the external auditory canal. Taking proper impressions for earmolds is an extremely important part of fitting hearing aids. The dispenser must have knowledge of important anatomical factors as well as possible medical problems. Understanding the impression-making process and developing a good impression technique are the hallmarks of a competent hearing aid fitter.

Ear impressioning represents virtually the only aspect of hearing aid fitting in which there could be potential physical harm to a patient if observations and procedures are not precisely and knowledgeably performed. While you will have malpractice coverage, it is always best never to have to use it.

If, after you learn about impressioning and practice it repeatedly, you are uncomfortable with the procedures, you should not make ear impressions.
