Hearing Loss treatment depends on the cause and how severe it is. Most important is that help and treatments are available.
Options for Hearing Loss Treatment
- Surgical procedures – surgery is needed when people experienced traumatic ear injury or repeated infections that demand the insertion of small tubes which help the ears drain.
- Removal of wax blockage – a doctor can remove the wax by loosening it with oil and then flushing, scooping, or suctioning the softened earwax out.
- Hearing Aids – if the hearing loss is due to damages in the inner ear, a hearing aid may help by making sound stronger and easier to hear. An audiologist may help by showing the benefits of a hearing aid, recommending the most suitable for every person, and making it fit the ear.
- Cochlear Implants – for severe hearing losses a cochlear implant is the best solution. A cochlear implant compensates for damaged or non-functioning parts of the inner ear.
