Hearing Care and Hearing Aid Services
The Hearing Aid Specialists of the Carolinas offers custom programs for a variety of ENT problems. Hearing loss affects millions around the world, so different solutions are needed to reach the goals of each individual. Even a slight difference in hearing has a positive influence on daily tasks for both children and adults.
Cerumen removal (earwax) builds up in the ear and causes hearing loss, tinnitus and other related problems. Irrigation, syringing and microsuction are the three main ways to deal with the problem. All three removal methods are painless and will prevent many chronic problems from developing. Part of earwax removal treatment is educating patients on what home methods to avoid. Bad home removals make wax harder to deal with over time.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
Think of the evaluation as the first step to getting the hearing aids that make a difference in hearing. A lot of information gathering is done during the evaluation, so prior medical history is needed. The type of tests performed to determine hearing loss will be based on that information and an audiologists professional opinion.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Problematic hearing aids should be dealt with immediately to prevent further damage. When normal cleaning and maintenance doesn’t do the trick, patients can depend on their audiologists to do minor repairs in office. Repairs that are more serious need to be sent off to the manufacturer for a full repair or replacement. During this period, patients can discuss replacement options until the repair is complete. The most important part of hearing aid repairs is knowing the warranty conditions and what is covered.
Our mobile services make it easy and convenient to have your hearing tested where you live.
Tinnitus Treatment Options
Constant noises in the ear that can only be heard by the individual is called subjective tinnitus. When special instruments used by a professional can hear the sound, it is known as objective tinnitus. There are also subcategories of the same type, with the most discussed being neurological tinnitus and somatic tinnitus. Although no known cure exists for the most frequent types, there have been many breakthroughs aimed at mitigating the effects of the condition.
