How to Treat Hearing Loss

It is important to treat hearing loss, especially for those of us who are entering our retirement years or who has a loved one in that stage of their life. Left untreated, hearing loss is known to be linked to psychological issues such as cognitive decline and depression, as well as physical challenges such as an increased risk of trips and falls.

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.

Treating Hearing Loss with Hearing Aids

Using Hearing Aid is one of the most effective non-invasive ways to treat hearing loss. Especially since there is no cure for age-related hearing loss, hearing aids are the best way to help treat hearing loss to ensure you can continue enjoying your current lifestyle.

It all starts with an appointment for a free hearing test (ear exam). Once you complete this no-cost test, you will be presented with the hearing aid options that work best for your unique hearing situation.
