There are different types and degrees of hearing loss, ranging from mild to profound. Sensorineural hearing loss relates to the way the hearing nerve functions. It can be caused by genetics, exposure to loud noises, or simply aging. This type of hearing loss is often successfully treated with hearing aids. Conductive loss, on the other hand, is caused by something physically blocking the sound in the outer or middle ear, such as fluid or earwax buildup. Mixed hearing loss combines both conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.
In addition, many Birmingham residents struggle with chronic ear infections. Young children are especially susceptible to ear infections because their immune systems are not fully developed and their Eustachian tubes are shorter and more prone to blockage. At Excel ENT of Alabama, we know how to restore comfort and hearing quality to patients of all ages.
