Dentist Hearing Loss Products

Dentists and dental professionals are at-risk for permanent hearing loss.

Research has identified a link between the use of dental equipment and noise induced hearing loss.  According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, noise induced hearing loss is the most common occupational injury; often requiring expensive digital hearing aids to accommodate the loss of hearing.

These dental hearing loss products feature patented SmartWear™ stent technology.  Revolutionary advances in earmold technology allows for the comfort of a custom fit device without the need for messy, time-consuming impressions of the ears.  Sound reduction is achieved by utilizing an attenuated filter protector system; allowing clear, natural communication while protecting the ear from loud and hazardous sound levels.

The patented Nitinol stent can withstand many thousands of compressions and expansions without failure.  Dentist hearing loss ear plugs hearing protection systems are made of Medical grade, low durometer silicone that will never crack, shrink or harden.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandates that employers provide hearing conservation programs for their employees in workplaces where noise levels equal or exceed 85 dB(A) for an eight-hour time-weighted average.  An occupational hearing conservation program includes engineering and administrative controls to reduce noise exposures, employee training in the use of hearing protection and annual audiometry for all workers who are exposed to noise.
