Comparison of two impression techniques for auricular prosthesis: Pilot study

Kasim Mohamed, MDS, et al.

This article highlights the efficacy of a new impression technique, the triple-layer impression technique (TLIT), which plays a vital role in fabricating a cosmetic silicone auricular prosthesis for unilateral auricular defects. The TLIT reduces the distortion of the ear in impressions. The models were more accurate when compared with the conventional impression technique described in the literature. Thus, TLIT will help the maxillofacial prosthetist achieve better orientation of unilateral ear prostheses.
