What Can Be Done For Hearing Loss?
In general, there are four ways to treat hearing loss:
Removing Ear Wax. Too much wax in the ear canal is a reversible cause of hearing loss. Ear wax can be removed by using suction and/or by gently washing out wax from the ear.
Surgical procedures. Hearing loss stemming from abnormalities of the eardrum or the ossicles will require treatment with surgery.
Cochlear implants. This type of hearing loss treatment is reserved for cases of more severe hearing loss and where conventional hearing aids provide only a limited gain in hearing. Cochlear implants bypass the non-working parts of your inner ear to directly stimulate the hearing nerve to help improve hearing loss.
Hearing aids. The use of Hearing Aids is the most popular treatment for hearing loss, especially if the hearing loss is due to damage in the inner ear. Calibrated to address your specific hearing needs, hearing aids are uniquely fitted to amplify the sounds you need to hear, while minimizing the noise that you want to avoid.
