Hearing aids are a common hearing loss solution for people experiencing various levels of hearing issues. When someone is experiencing a loss of hearing, it can make it difficult for them to communicate with others. This can lead to feelings of isolation, stress and even depression.
Being able to hear clearly is important to someone’s overall health, making it necessary for the individual to make an appointment with an audiologist as soon as possible for a long-lasting treatment.
An audiology center provides multiple types of solutions for patients struggling with hearing impairment and other issues. Our audiology center can treat multiple forms of hearing loss that has various levels of severity. An audiology center is where audiologists perform hearing evaluations and hearing tests to identify what form of hearing aid or treatment a patient needs.
People can also purchase hearing aids at an audiology center. Here are multiple types of hearing aids and treatment options available.
Custom Hearing Aids
Custom hearing aids provide a perfect fit for an individual patient’s ears, making them more comfortable for the patient to wear. Custom hearing aids also allow us to make the hearing aid cosmetically discreet. When a patient chooses custom hearing aids instead of buying generic hearing aids, they are getting the personalized fit that can make the hearing aids work all that much better.
Custom Ear Molds
Custom ear molds are available and provide patients with the comfort they are looking for when they need to wear a hearing aid. One of our medical professionals will take an impression of the patient’s ear to send to a specialty lab, where the lab workers will then make the chosen hearing aid. Soft, dome style custom ear molds are a popular choice, with other custom ear mold styles including the canal, full shell, half shell, skeleton and semi-skeleton.
Musician In-Ear Monitors
Musician in-ear monitors are a common choice for patients in the music industry since they can reduce the amount of stage volume. This allows the musician to always know what is happening when they are on stage. Musician in-ear monitors work by using sound isolating technology and require the musician to invest in a custom ear mold for a perfect fitting.
ReSound Hearing Aids
ReSound hearing aids address a patient’s unique hearing needs so the patient is able to hear well in everyday life situations. ReSound hearing aids use the latest technology, which means they are able to offer superior hearing that every patient deserves. Since ReSound provides patients with personalized high-quality hearing aids, they are able to choose the hearing aid that most effectively matches their particular lifestyle.
Invisible Hearing Aids
Invisible hearing aids are often popular with patients who prefer to keep their hearing aid discreet and difficult for other people to notice. We will need to take a custom ear mold of the patient so that the invisible hearing aid is a perfect match to the inside of their ear canal. Once complete, we will place the hearing aid into the patient’s ear canal, making it extremely comfortable and nearly invisible.
Phonak Hearing Aids
Phonak hearing aids are quality hearing aids that are specifically designed for easy wearing. Phonak understands how hearing loss can impact someone’s life and accordingly specialize in making high-quality hearing aids that allow for easy and effortless wearing.
Rechargeable Hearing Aids
New technologies are making it so that rechargeable hearing aids are becoming a more popular hearing aid choice. Hearing aids customarily use batteries to give them the power to work, which can become expensive over time. And when a battery dies, the hearing aid no longer works, which can prove to be very inconvenient. Rechargeable hearing aids eliminate these problems.
Starkey Hearing Aids
Starkey hearing aids use nanotechnology and are fully customizable, making them a top hearing aid choice. Starkey specializes in using the latest hearing aid technologies, making them a leader in digital hearing aids.
Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Bluetooth hearing aids use Bluetooth technology to connect their cell phones, televisions, tablets and more to their hearing aid. This wireless connection ability is able to make it easier for those wearing hearing aids live their life due to the many advantages that Bluetooth hearing aids can offer hearing aid wearers nowadays.
Digital Hearing Aids
Digital hearing aids do not simply amplify sound like analog hearing aids do. Instead, digital hearing aids convert sound ways to digital signals, which allows the wearer to hear much clearer. Background noise is also reduced when wearing digital hearing aids, making them a top choice for those who need to wear a hearing aid to hear better.
Phone Compatible Hearing Aids
Phone compatible hearing aids are becoming more popular and simply refer to hearing aids that are able to connect to a cell phone in order to exchange information. In order for a hearing aid to be compatible with a cell phone, it needs to contain telecoils.
