Davis Family Hearing has a solution for all types of hearing loss. Sometimes, hearing aids are not enough. When that happens, do not give up. Davis Family Hearing offers cochlear implants and bone anchored instruments to accomplish what traditional hearing aid cannot. Bone-anchored instruments bypass the outer and middle ear and stimulate the inner ear that houses the hearing nerve directly. These instruments are appropriate for patients who have atresia, stenosis, single-sided deafness, and chronic middle ear disease.
Cochlear implants are a wonderful solution when patients have extreme difficulty understanding with their existing hearing aids. Sometimes the hearing nerve is so damaged that patients are not able to see enough benefit while wearing a hearing aid. That is when a cochlear implant can bring patients the speech understanding ability that they are looking for.
When children are born with a severe to profound hearing loss, cochlear implants give them the sound that they need for learning speech and language. This sets the stage for all other learning and helps to prevent children with severe to profound hearing losses from falling behind their normal-hearing peers in school.
