Congratulations on the birth of your child....
Everyday, approximately 30 percent of all infants are born with a congenital ear deformity. There are several common deformities that either make your baby's ear seem very pointy or abnormally shaped. Some ears stick out more than they should, these are called prominent ears, while some ear rims appear to be "folded down or bent."
Most ear deformities do not cause any medical problems such as hearing loss, however children with ear deformities are frequently bullied and many of them wind up having corrective surgery as they turn 5 or 6 years of age.
Newborn ear molding is now an amazing option for parents faced with an ear deformity. Treatment needs to be performed as soon as possible, preferably within the first 14 days of life.
As a parent, you want the best for your child. We at TalexMedical have designed InfantEar™, a non-surgical, easy to use, and cost effective solution to correct infant ear deformities early in life. InfantEar may prevent the need for costly surgery at an older age and transform the lives of patients and their families. Until now, parent's choices were limited.
For purposes of discussion with your doctor and to help you better understand your child’s deformity, it may be helpful to visualize a normal ear and what terminology doctors use to describe its various parts.

The InfantEar™ System in 6 Easy Steps
An InfantEar Cap is applied as is an infant Beanie, which will help protect the device from dislodgment.
A small amount of hair will be shaved from the scalp around the ear and and the skin will be cleaned of any oils and patted dry.
The 2-sided Base Plate, made of Velcro and an adhesive (approved for use in children), will be applied. The clinician may outline its position with a marking pen prior to removing the protective adhesive backing. The tab will be removed and Base Plate adhered to the skin.
The InfantEar™ System:
Is not painful, some babies sleep during most of the procedure
Can be done in your doctor's office
Covered by most insurance companies

The psychological impact of an ear deformity can be devastating and last a lifetime, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Often parents have feelings of guilt, worry, and concern about their child's future and potentially living with an ear deformity, which may lead to ridicule and low self-esteem.
