Hearing Care Q & A

What is hearing care?

You rely on your ability to hear as an essential part of communication. If you start to notice a decline in your hearing or it was never great to start, the team at Oasis Ear, Nose, and Throat can diagnose you and treat you for hearing loss with advanced audiology treatments and services. 

You might need hearing care at any age or stage of life. Hearing loss is one of the most common chronic health conditions among adults, and it can either happen slowly over time or very suddenly. While common, hearing loss is not a natural part of aging, and there are steps you can take to preserve it. 

What are some signs that I need hearing care?

There are several signs and symptoms associated with hearing loss and other complications that audiology treatments can address. You might not even realize that your hearing is on the decline until you notice other signs, like:

  • Trouble understanding other speakers
  • Asking people to repeat themselves often
  • Ear ringing
  • Ear buzzing
  • Turning up the volume on your television frequently

Without treatment, your hearing continues to decline. Even if it declines very slowly, getting treatment as soon as possible can greatly benefit you. The team diagnoses several types of hearing loss at Oasis Ear, Nose, and Throat and can help you find a lasting solution to improve your auditory abilities.

Which audiology treatments are available?

The skilled team at Oasis Ear, Nose, and Throat provides several treatments and services related to audiology. Usually, they treat hearing loss with various easy-to-use hearing devices, but in-office procedures are necessary in some cases.

The team assesses your case and the extent of your hearing loss before recommending a specific device or treatment. Your treatment might involve:

Hearing aids

Hearing aids are devices that fit into your ear and amplify sounds. Common types of hearing aids include inner ear implants and bone-anchored implants.

Cochlear implants

A cochlear implant is a type of ear implant that stimulates your auditory nerve instead of merely amplifying sounds. These implants typically work best for severe hearing loss. 

Surgery or in-office procedures

Certain procedures and surgeries can help you if you have hearing loss. Earwax removal and drainage procedures can help open your ear canal and improve your hearing.
