General Maintenance Tips

Your follow-up appointments are instrumental in maintaining your hearing health. This allows us to address any issues or concerns and make sure we are doing everything we can to help you hear at your full potential.

Keep your hearing aids away from water. Although many models are water resistant, certain components are still susceptible to moisture damage.

Hearing aid dryers are available for those who need them.

Do you have pets? Keep your hearing aids stored out of their reach. Dogs are attracted to the scent of the ear and if they have access, they can destroy the hearing aids even if they are not chewers! Cats can view them as a fun toy and can often hide them, causing you to misplace your hearing aids.

If ever you feel like you aren't hearing as good as you should be with your aids, the first things to check are the domes and/or filters. Replacing or cleaning them may provide a better listening experience.

Tinnitus Management

What is Tinnitus?

  • Tinnitus (ringing/buzzing in ears) affects ~10% of Americans on a regular basis.
  • 25 million American adults have reported having had tinnitus for five or more continuous minutes in the past year.
  • Roughly 90% of tinnitus cases occur with an underlying hearing loss.
  • 16 million people seek medical attention for tinnitus.

What Causes It and What Cures It?

Tinnitus is the final frontier in hearing healthcare. So much about this mysterious ringing, buzzing, or humming sound is still unknown. Once we think research has made a breakthrough in the industry, we find that we are just scratching the surface. Research and practice tells us that there is no constant known cause, and no known cure for every case, simply commonalities. One thing that has been correlated with tinnitus is STRESS. The more stress that is present in someone’s life, the greater the potential to experience tinnitus. We also know from research and practice that the more severe someone's hearing loss is, the worse the tinnitus can be.

How Do I Manage It?

The best way to manage tinnitus is to manage the exposure to stress in your life. One way to reduce stress is by seeking help for the hearing loss that is correlated in about 90% of all tinnitus cases. Hearing aids can reduce stress by giving the brain the information it needs to make sense of sound and reduce the effort it takes to focus and interpret sound correctly. Hearing aids can potentially provide relief for tinnitus. In research and practice, statistics support that hearing aids have management technology and features to relieve tinnitus. By decreasing the cognitive load (effort) on the brain, this can potentially provide tinnitus relief. Furthermore, clinical evidence shows that the use of hearing aids in tinnitus patients provides two benefits: it makes the patient less aware of the tinnitus and it improves communication by reducing the annoying sensation when sounds and voices are masked by the tinnitus.
