At one time or another in your life you’ve most likely heard some ringing in your ears. And that ringing has a name: tinnitus. According to most research, 15-20% of people experience tinnitus at any particular time. Even though most people only hear this ringing intermittently, some people experience chronic tinnitus that doesn’t go away. The most prevalent treatment for tinnitus is, fortunately, fairly simple: hearing aids.
Dealing With Persistent Tinnitus
Prolonged tinnitus can happen for a variety of reasons, and a few of them are better understood than others. Tinnitus can also sound like a wide variety of subjective and objective sounds, from pounding to clanging to metallic buzz-saw noises, whatever loud cacophony your ears can create.
The noisier and more extreme the sounds are, the more intrusive tinnitus can get. Difficulty communicating, mental health declines, and interruption of your day to day life can be the eventual result.
Hearing Aids And Tinnitus
While hearing aids don’t actually “cure” tinnitus they are quite good at dealing with some of the most pronounced symptoms. Hearing aids are capable of accomplishing this in numerous ways.
Making The Ringing in Your Ears Harder to Notice
Tinnitus and hearing loss often manifest hand in hand. They can have the same underlying cause or not. But it’s quite likely that your tinnitus will get worse as your hearing loss declines. When you’re not hearing external sounds so well, the internal ones really stand out.
When you’re using hearing aids the sounds of the outside world will be turned up. You will get relief when your tinnitus is pushed back where it’s manageable. Now you can get back to enjoying your life again.
Canceling Out The Noise
Clearly, overwhelming your tinnitus isn’t the same thing as masking your tinnitus. That’s why many contemporary hearing aids will utilize a specialized twist on noise-canceling technology to help manage the ringing and buzzing. We can teach you how to fine tune your hearing aid to emit certain white noises that help lessen your tinnitus. Utilizing this type of technology, you will be less aware of tinnitus sounds.
This is a specialized technology and an appointment with us will help you figure out if this is right for you.
Most forms of chronic tinnitus can’t be cured. But you still can find a way to deal with it. A precisely calibrated hearing aid can enable you to live your life more fully and enjoy the world without being overwhelmed by ringing, buzzing, or any other tinnitus-related sounds. Hearing aids are the ideal choice for individuals with tinnitus.
