Frequently Asked Questions
There is a lot to know about hearing, hearing aids, tinnitus, and balance. Hopefully, we can answer some of your questions below. If you don’t see your question answered, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you anyway we can.
Although there is not one known cure for tinnitus, there are many treatment options that will help alleviate the ringing in your ears. Hearing aids are a great option for patients who experience tinnitus as well as hearing loss. Hearing aids can amplify external sounds which mask the tinnitus. We also carry hearing aids with a tinnitus masking feature which can play ambient noise or music to soothe tinnitus. We also offer sound therapy and counseling to teach you how to distract your brain from tinnitus symptoms.
If you have a mild hearing loss then hearing aids will be the best option for you. Cochlear implants are for individuals who have severe hearing loss and have tried hearing aids with no avail. If you have a severe hearing loss and hearing aids are not helping you, then we can perform a specialized test to determine if you are a cochlear implant candidate.
One of the major risks associated with untreated hearing loss is that the ability to understand information becomes more difficult. Once this has changed, it is much more difficult to get back. The other major risk is that when you can no longer enjoy the conversation you may not participate in the conversation. Your hearing health can greatly impact your overall health. Studies have proven that there is a link between untreated hearing loss and dementia.
The most common symptoms of vertigo and other balance disorders include a spinning sensation, the feeling of tilting or swaying, or feeling unbalanced. Other symptoms include nausea or vomiting, headache, sensitivity to light or noise, double vision, feeling weak, shortness of breath, sweating, or fast heartbeat. If you or your child are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact us. We can diagnose any balance disorders and help you feel steady again.
