The most complete source for hearing healthcare in central Connecticut is Hearing Health & Wellness Center. Located in Plantsville, CT, our clinic offers the latest cutting-edge hearing aids and audiological services. We take great pride in being the one-stop convenience for all of your hearing needs, including hearing aids, accessories, and hearing protection.

Below are hearing services that we offer:

Hearing Tests

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.

Tinnitus Care

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Basically, yes. Through self-referral, you are not obliged to see a physician or practice nurse before making an appointment with an audiologist. The majority, if not all, third party payers will need a referral, even though neither state licensure nor an audiologist’s ethics necessitate one. It is best to confirm the details of the referral with the specific payer. Payers, however, are generally reasonable and permit a broad recommendation, as is the case with Medicare. Medicare accepts written correspondence signed by the treating practitioner or his or her office, phone calls from the practitioner or his or her office, or emails from the practitioner or his or her office (section 80.6.1 of Chapter 15 of the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual). 
Presently, a physician referral is required for all diagnostic audiological treatments covered by Medicare; nevertheless, the main factor affecting payment is the reason for the test. Medicare will pay for medically appropriate and required procedures to diagnose and treat a patient’s illness. For each service that is invoiced, the clinician is required to document in the medical record the precise sign, symptom, or medical complaint that prompted the service.
A hearing aid specialist can perform a simple hearing evaluation on you and fit you with a hearing aid. A wider range of hearing, balance, and related audiological problems can be assessed and diagnosed by audiologists. The medical experts responsible for identifying the underlying cause of hearing loss are audiologists since they are trained in the pathology of hearing loss. Contrarily, a hearing aid specialist is only concerned with conducting hearing tests to fit hearing aids.
Professionals who test hearing and provide aftercare for hearing aids are known as hearing aid dispensers (HADs). Hearing aid dispensers must be licensed and certified in order to use hearing technology. A wider variety of hearing and balance problems can be assessed and diagnosed by audiologists. For treatments that are more closely tied to medicine, such as balance issues, Ear wax, and hearing loss brought about by exposure to noise, an audiologist may be more appropriate. Both professionals are competent in fitting and adjusting hearing aids as well as performing cleaning, maintenance, and repairs.
Analysis tests are primarily carried out by audiologists to assess a patient’s hearing capacity. Audiologists can identify and treat hearing loss with hearing aids and other devices. They devote a lot of effort to teaching patients and their families better communication and hearing-care techniques. Audiologists can also diagnose and handle patients who have issues with hearing and balance, and can carry out professional Ear wax removal.
Hearing aids that are purchased on the cheap are not nearly as effective as those that are fitted and maintained by a qualified hearing healthcare professional. The sophisticated noise filters and abrupt noise mitigation capabilities of more expensive versions are absent from inexpensive hearing aids. In fact, inexpensive hearing aids have the ability to produce loud noises that can further harm your hearing.
Numerous factors can lead to hearing loss, so it’s crucial to obtain a thorough hearing evaluation to choose the most effective course of action. Regular exposure to excessively loud noises can increase one’s susceptibility to hearing loss over time. As a person gets older, age-related hearing loss is expected to happen gradually. Hearing loss may also result from taking certain treatments or medications.
Attempting to clean out your ears using cotton swabs could further impact wax, while pointy objects can cause injuries to your ear canal. To avoid damaging delicate ear parts, we strongly advise professional Ear wax removal to remove wax buildup rather than using do-it-yourself methods. Professional ear wax removal is quick and generally painless. Audiologists have the appropriate tools and methods to ensure that your ears are safe during the procedure.
