Hearing loss types and treatment

The main types of hearing loss (sensorineural and conductive) affect different parts of the ear, and the recommended treatment differs for each type. Additionally, there are other forms of hearing loss that are unique in their symptoms and treatment options. You can read about standard treatment options for each by clicking on the hearing loss types and causes below.

Did you know?

People with hearing loss wait an average of 7 years before they choose to seek treatment. 

Getting your hearing evaluated and treated with hearing aids is easy and painless. In fact, most hearing aid users regret that they didn't seek treatment even sooner.

Mild to moderate hearing loss

When finding a hearing aid to treat mild to moderate hearing loss, there are a wide range of hearing aid styles to choose from. Both in-the-ear and behind-the-ear hearing aid styles are suitable, and the features can be personalized based on your preferences.

Severe hearing loss

In the case of severe hearing loss, behind-the-ear hearing aids are the most common hearing aid type used to treat this type of hearing loss, due to the fact that they typically have the battery power and technology required to effectively treat severe hearing loss.Full shell in-the-ear hearing aids may also be an option, depending on your hearing needs. No matter the option you choose, the features in the hearing aid can be catered to your personal needs.

Profound hearing loss

For those with profound hearing loss, if a powerful behind-the-ear hearing aid does not significantly improve the ability to hear in everyday life, then a hearing care expert may recommend surgical solutions such as cochlear implants or bone anchored hearing systems.
