Earwax is a natural substance that protects the ears from water, bacteria and other damaging particles. Normally earwax regulates itself by getting rid of the excess. When this doesn’t happen on its own, the buildup can cause problems. Earwax removal is a noninvasive process that can be treated with flushing, suction, or using a curette.
Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations
An examination is required to determine the hearing loss type a patient is suffering from. The evaluation can also provide results to rule out hearing loss as a health problem. By using the information from past medical history, audiologists can decide which tests make the most sense. Some of the most common tests are pure-tone air and bone conduction, speech and tympanometry.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
A hearing evaluation is performed before the decision to get hearing aids becomes a reality. The extent of hearing loss will play a significant role when choosing hearing aid types. Whatever the results of the test conclude, an audiologist will go into great detail explaining treatment options. A patient’s decision on hearing device type is helped by having all of the information mentioned.
Hearing Aid Fitting & programming
When fitting new hearing aids, live speech mapping ensures the best possible sound quality the first time. Every patient has specific hearing needs that need to be met. Audiologists can see what the patient hears in real-time by using this technology. The results are recorded and used to make final adjustments during the fitting to hearing devices.
Hearing Aid Repairs & Maintenance
Following the essentials of hearing aid maintenance will prevent the most common device issues. With an average amount of upkeep, hearing aids can last a really long time. Insurance and in-office repair options will ease the minds of most patients. When damage is substantial, leasing options are presented to keep users from being without hearing aids.
Industrial Hearing Screenings
Long-term exposure to loud noise can cause irreparable hearing damage. This is a common hazard of working in an industry with specific machinery. Hearing tests for industrial workers is a necessary step to preventing permanent hearing loss. Even when it isn’t mandated by state law, most industrial jobs still require regular hearing screenings.
Hearing Care for Infants and Children
The type of hearing care provided for adults are not fit for children and infants. To get the most accurate results, there are tests made specifically for their age range. Some of these even prioritize early detection of the most common hearing problems. With the right care, temporary hearing issues can be dealt with before they become permanent.
