Before a treatment plan for hearing loss can be created, a series of hearing tests need to be performed. These hearing tests determine the type and degree of your hearing loss, including the frequencies and pitches that you have difficulty hearing. Hearing tests include:
- an ocular inspection of the ears with an otoscope to see if there is ear wax obstructing your canal,
- testing the “threshold” at which you can hear different frequencies of sounds,
- assessing the volume at which you can detect and understand speech,
- performing a test to see how well you hear in a noisy environment.
Ear Wax Removal
The primary function of Ear wax is to lubricate and defend the ears from debris, bacteria, and other foreign particles. Contrary to popular belief, Ear wax does not need to be removed daily. The outer ears can be cleaned with a soft cloth or towel, but ear wax usually doesn’t need to be removed.
It can be annoying when the body creates too much ear wax. Itchiness, impaired hearing, tinnitus, and even vertigo can be brought on by impacted Ear wax. In these situations, a trip to an audiologist is required so that an ear exam can be performed out.
The safest way to remove ear wax is to have it done by a professional who knows the right methods and techniques. Professional Ear wax removal is one of the many audiological services offered by Hearing Health & Wellness Center to clients.
Do you occasionally notice a ringing in your ears? Does this sound have an adverse effect on your life or your job? If so, you may suffer from tinnitus. Tinnitus can be brought on by several types of hearing loss or other medical conditions. In certain situations, tinnitus could interfere with daily tasks.
If you suspect that you have tinnitus, see us for an evaluation.
Real Ear Measurement
We use real ear measurement to ensure that the hearing aids prescribed and fitted to our patients are appropriately configured as part of our Best Practices to provide the finest possible hearing care.
Hearing Health & Wellness performs real ear measurements as a part of every hearing aid fitting.
Hearing Aid Fitting
At Hearing Health & Wellness Center, hearing aid fittings comprise prescription-based programming to address a patient’s unique hearing needs. We utilize real ear measurements to verify that the devices are correctly programmed and to make sure that the hearing specifications are met as accurately as possible.
We will go over the fundamentals of using your new hearing aids with you before you leave the office, including how to insert and remove the devices, change the batteries, and clean and maintain the devices.
We strongly advise our patients to attend the hearing aid fitting with a family member or friend so they can assist in remembering everything and offer support during the transition.
Hearing Aid Batteries
We recommend you carry a spare pack of batteries with you at all times to enjoy uninterrupted hearing. Hearing Health & Wellness Center carries batteries for all styles of hearing aids. We also have charging docks for rechargeable hearing aids. Whether you use disposable or rechargeable batteries, we can take care of your battery needs.
