Hearing Aids

The placement of an acoustic hearing aid or denture is recommended in the case of severe to profound hearing loss, otosclerosis, early acoustic trauma, young people with congenital deafness, childhood nerve damage during viral conditions, hyperthermic conditions, and when the ORL physician does not recommend treatment with surgical intervention or medication treatment.

Today’s hearing aids are digital and operate thanks to a complex circuit consisting of:

Microphone, which captures the sound

Computer chip, which amplifies and processes sound

‘Speaker’, which sends the signal to the ear, and battery

One of the challenges for ORL physicians and audiologists in our society remains to overcome the mentality of younger patients, as well as individuals over 50, that putting a hearing aid does not make you look older.

The reluctance to be fitted with hearing aids, especially in the case of children with congenital hearing loss, has a significant impact on their psychosocial development, and is associated with delayed speech and language development, non responding to loud noises, high performance low in school, behavioral problems, etc.

Meanwhile for young patients who accidentally detect hearing loss due to accommodation with that level of hearing, immediate placement of the hearing aid is recommended to keep the hearing nerve in tone and to improve the quality of life of the patient.

Although a patient can benefit significantly from the use of a device, setting up two is recommended. This is due to the coordinated perception of both ears of sound waves and better hearing.It is suggested the hearing aid is bought in the place you live because it needs adjusting,a gradual increase in volume, which is done digitally at the company where it is purchased. In the meantime the appliances in our Cabinet are offered with 2 years warranty and are of average life span up to 8 – 10 years.
