Everything You Want to Know About Hearing Health
Here are the most common questions about hearing loss and hearing health.
How Do I know If I Need a Hearing Test?
If you experience difficulty understanding conversations, frequently ask others to repeat themselves or think they’re constantly mumbling, have ringing in your ears, or notice a gradual decrease in your hearing abilities then you should have your hearing tested. If you’re over 50 years old, it’s recommended for everyone to get a baseline hearing test.

Can Hearing Loss Cause Dementia?
Untreated hearing loss is associated with a higher risk of dementia. Studies have found a connection between hearing loss and cognitive decline. When hearing loss happens, the brain has to work harder to process sounds, straining cognitive resources. Social isolation and reduced mental stimulation from untreated hearing loss can also contribute to dementia. It’s important to promptly address hearing loss.

- Difficulty understanding conversations, especially in noisy environments like restaurants
- Frequently asking people to repeat what they said
- Feeling like others are mumbling or not speaking clearly
- Turning up the volume on the TV, radio, or phone to levels that others find too loud
- Avoiding social situations or withdrawing from conversations
- Tinnitus, which is a ringing or buzzing sound in the ears
- Struggling to hear high-pitched sounds like doorbells or alarms
- Having difficulty hearing on the phone
How often should I have my hearing checked?
It is generally recommended to have your hearing checked by a professional every year after the age of 50 or if you experience any changes in your hearing. However, if you have any concerns about your hearing, it is always a good idea to schedule an appointment with a hearing health professional as soon as possible.
What are the different types of hearing loss?
There are 3 main types of hearing loss: conductive, sensorineural, and mixed. Conductive hearing loss happens when something stops sound from getting into your ears, like earwax or an ear infection. Sensorineural hearing loss is caused by a problem with the nerves in your ears that send sound signals to your brain – there can be caused by aging, noise exposure, genetics, infections, and more. Mixed hearing loss is a combination of both.
Can hearing loss be cured?
Whether or not hearing loss can be cured depends on the cause and severity of the hearing loss. In some cases, hearing loss can be reversed or improved through medical or surgical intervention. For example, if the underlying cause of hearing loss is an ear infection or blockage, treating the infection or removing the blockage might restore hearing. However, for most types of hearing loss, such as age-related hearing loss or noise-induced hearing loss, a complete cure is not currently possible. In these cases, hearing aids can often help individuals effectively manage their hearing loss and experience substantial improvement in communication abilities.
Treating Hearing Loss
Here are the most common questions about treating hearing loss, click on the question to read the answer.
Can hearing aids help with tinnitus (ringing in the ears)?
Yes, hearing aids can often help with tinnitus by providing sound amplification and distraction from the ringing sensation. However, results may vary depending on the individual, so it’s important to consult a hearing health professional to discuss your specific needs and options.
Which type of hearing aid is right for me?
There are many different types of hearing aids tailored for different individuals and their needs. Our experienced hearing healthcare professionals will assess your hearing loss, lifestyle, and preferences to recommend the best option for you. We prioritize comfort, sound quality, and seamless integration into your daily life.
Do I need two hearing aids or can I wear only one?
It is recommended to wear two hearing aids for optimal hearing health. Our ears and eyes function similarly, working together to provide us with a fuller perception of the world. Wearing two hearing aids helps to balance sound input and improve localization of sounds and provides a more natural hearing experience by allowing both ears to work together. It also distributes the workload more evenly, reducing strain on our ears and brain when processing sounds. This leads to improved comfort and reduced fatigue throughout the day.
Can hearing aids restore my hearing to normal?
Hearing aids cannot completely restore hearing to normal, but they can greatly improve your ability to hear and understand speech. They amplify sounds and make them clearer, allowing you to participate more fully in conversations and other activities that you enjoy in your life.
