Understanding Hearing Aids
If you’re considering trying hearing aids, it’s important to understand that there are different types of hearing aids that you can choose from. Each style has slightly different purposes and can help with mild to severe hearing loss. The way a hearing aid looks may also impact your choice as well. It’s important to understand what your options are when talking to our ENT doctor about your choices so that you can choose the hearing aid that fits you and your lifestyle the best!
The most common types of hearing aids include:
- Completely in the canal
- In the canal
- In the ear
- Behind the ear
- Receiver in canal
Your ENT doctor can explain the benefits of each style and what may work best for you. The hearing aid you choose will depend on the style you’re looking for and the severity of your hearing loss. You can also talk to your doctor about additional benefits that could be included with your hearing aid.
It’s important to note that hearing aids cannot cure or fully restore your hearing but can help amplify noises around you while the hearing aid is being worn.
