Hearing Loss Treatment: What to Choose?

Treatment for temporary or reversible hearing loss usually depends on the cause of the hearing loss. Treatment for permanent hearing loss includes using hearing devices. Here are some treatment for hearing loss.

 

1. Cochlear Implant


A cochlear implant is a device that restores hearing to people with very severe or profound deafness. Cochlear implants have been used since the late 1960s.

A cochlear implant is a safe electronic device that is implanted beneath the skin and into the inner ear (in rare cases, the device can actually be implanted directly into the brain). Once the outer skin has healed, an external device is placed on the skin over the implanted device and turned on.

 

2. Hearing Aids


According to wikipedia, a hearing aid is an electroacoustic device which typically fits in or behind the wearer’s ear, and is designed to amplify and modulate sound for the wearer. Earlier devices, known as an “ear trumpet” or “ear horn”, were passive funnel-like amplification cones designed to gather sound energy and direct it into the ear canal.

Hearing aids are never as good as perfect hearing. However, there have been dramatic improvements in technology. In general, it is possible to find a very satisfactory, appropriate hearing aid as long as there is some residual hearing (not total deafness).

 

3. Surgery
Ear surgery is extremely common, and it is generally safe and effective when performed by an expert surgeon. Certain operations are particularly common. But you have to make sure you find the expert and discuss it beforehand. Ask the doctor what effects you will get if you choose surgery as your treatment. Actually it depends on the corruptness of your ears.
