Hearing FAQs

Your hearing health is an important part of your overall well-being, so it’s natural that you have questions. Below are some answers to questions our patients frequently ask us. If you have a question you don’t see answered here, please contact us.
The best way to care for your hearing aids is by bringing them in for regular maintenance checks. In addition, you should also be sure to clean your hearing aids every time you take them out of your ears. Simply wipe them down with a dry cloth to remove any excess earwax or moisture. Always be sure to store your hearing aids in a dry, safe place where they won’t become lost or damaged.
Hearing loss can be caused by a number of factors. The most common causes of hearing loss include genetics, age, loud noise exposure, medications, infections, head or ear trauma, or a blockage in the ear canal. Whatever has caused your hearing loss, we can perform a hearing evaluation to determine if you could be helped by hearing aids.

Yes, hearing aids with Bluetooth capability are able to connect straight to your smartphone. This allows you to control your hearing aids through specific apps. With this control, you can stream phone calls, music, and other audio directly to your hearing aids. You can also control the volume of your hearing aids, check your battery status, and do so much more!

Many hearing aids are water resistant, not waterproof. Although hearing aids are durable and can handle moisture such as sweat or a little rain, you should do your best to keep your hearing aids dry. Never wear your devices in the shower or swimming. And always be sure to wipe them down with a dry cloth if they get wet.

Some types of hearing loss are preventable. Noise-induced hearing loss can be avoided by wearing proper hearing protection when exposed to loud noises, either occupationally or recreationally. To prevent other types of hearing loss, avoid sticking cotton swabs or other objects in your ears and avoid medications that could harm your hearing.

Tinnitus can be chronic or temporary. Some people experience short bursts of tinnitus that only occurs occasionally, while others may experience tinnitus on a regular basis. Often times, tinnitus is the result of a one-time exposure to loud noise. In this case, it’s important to come in for a hearing check. Our tinnitus specialists can help you experience relief from ringing in the ears.
