Your Better Hearing Journey Starts With A Comprehensive Hearing Assessment
One of the most troubling aspects of recognizing hearing loss involves the fact that it comes on at such a slow pace it is next to impossible to notice the day-to-day changes. Because of this, most people put off hearing tests because they don’t know they have a problem, or their hearing isn’t a healthcare priority.
About one out of ten Canadians (4 million people) have a hearing loss, including 6 out of 1000 children, which are likely develop hearing loss due to the increased exposure to loud noise, without ever being aware that they’ve developed a problem.
Despite these sobering statistics, our health screening priorities tend toward regular dental and vision testing as well as having our blood pressure and cholesterol checked but ignore regular hearing assessments. Since hearing loss is a growing health concern, it has never been more important to schedule a quick, non-invasive, and simple hearing assessment with one of our hearing care professionals.
Find The Right Advanced Technology Hearing Aid To Fit Your Lifestyle
None of us aspire to or expect that we’ll have to wear hearing aids. In fact, when you think about wearing them, you probably get nervous, recalling those bulky, fastidious gadgets worn by your parents or grandparents.
Fortunately for us and future generations, modern hearing aids are nothing like those outdated devices due to advancements in micro-digital technology that have improved a wide range of digital devices, like your smartphone and television. Today’s hearing aids are smaller, lighter, provide more powerful sound processing with greater clarity, and are so discrete to wear that many of our patients tell us that their friends, coworkers, or neighbours have never noticed that they wear hearing aids.
Among the features of advanced technology hearing aids are larger, longer-lasting, rechargeable batteries, as well as the capability to link your hearing aids to your smartphone, television, computer, and other digital devices for an enhanced hearing experience. Above all, our hearing aid experts help guide you through the process of selecting and fitting your new hearing aids, along with providing ongoing follow-up care.
Improve Your Ear Health with Professional Earwax Removal
Cerumen, that yellowish substance that you often find coming out of your ears, is more commonly referred to as earwax. Though it is a hassle to deal with sometimes, earwax plays an important role in helping keep your ears healthy, providing moisture and removing dirt, debris, bacteria, fungus, or foreign objects from your ear canal.
Maintaining a delicate balance when it comes to dealing with earwax is critical because of the role it plays in helping keep your ears healthy. Too little earwax might cause itching, irritation, and infection in your ear canal, while too much can lead to buildup, muffled sound, aching, and disrupt hearing aid performance.
When the important natural process of earwax removal isn’t done right, you can do damage to your ear canal and eardrum with cotton swabs and other cleaning methods, impacting the wax and making your problems worse. The safest, most effective way to deal with earwax is to allow a professional with access to specialized equipment, techniques, and expertise to remove it for you.
