The One: A solution to every dentist’s tinnitus and noise-induced hearing loss
The noise from dental drilling evokes dread from most dental patients. For dental professionals, drilling is a daily routine and most seem to have adapted to it. This noise is so common it almost becomes background noise. The suction and drills work simultaneously, and the equipment and chair positions also dictate noise level. Protecting your hearing is imperative for you and your career.
Dental professionals are more exposed to tinnitus and hearing loss. Due to the equipment and activities in the practice, the risks of hearing loss increases. The inner ear slowly deteriorates from the continuous exposure to irritating noise. It might start with constant buzzing or ringing in one or both ears. Escalation to a more serious inability to understand speech is another factor.
The innovation of customized dental ear plugs enables dental professionals to properly communicate with their patients while working is significant. The One are custom dental earplugs that interpret noises entering the ear and allow all natural, harmless sound to pass through the ear while reducing harmful noise and damaging frequencies to the ear.
