Hearing Aid Checkups
Hearing aids are amazing pieces of technology that can change the lives of those suffering from hearing impairments. Meant for daily use, hearing aids are strong and durable, but over time they can run into some problems. With proper care and regular maintenance, you can extend the longevity of your hearing aid. Here are some of the reasons why you should get hearing aid checkups.
The Importance of Hearing Aid Check Ups
Hearing aids, like any electronic device, do not last forever. We usually advise our patients that their new hearing aids should last them last five to seven years. As you may have guessed, the ear is not the most ideal place for a piece of technology. Temperature is a constant 98 degrees Fahrenheit, humidity runs anywhere between 40% and 70%, and earwax is a corrosive substance. Under these conditions, it’s no wonder that hearing aids run into problems. Common problems with hearing aids include sound being muffled or too quiet, sound being too loud, and feedback problems, when the hearing aid picks up its own operating sounds. This is the squawking we used to associate with hearing devices.
Hearing aids are sensitive and complex devices, but with proper care, cleaning, and maintenance, you can get the most out of your investment. Periodically visiting a hearing specialist helps solve some of the problems you are having with your hearing aid, preventing future problems and extending the lifespan of your hearing device. Even if you are not currently having problems with your hearing aid, a simple check-up prevents problems in the future.
