Frequently Asked Questions

Hearing Loss FAQs

There are three main types of hearing loss: sensorineural, conductive, and mixed. Sensorineural hearing loss results from damage to the inner ear or hearing nerve and is often treated with hearing aids. Conductive hearing loss occurs due to blockages in the outer or middle ear, like earwax or fluid buildup. Mixed hearing loss combines both sensorineural and conductive components.

Treatment options depend on the specific type and cause of hearing loss. Consulting with an ENT specialist is recommended for a thorough evaluation and personalized treatment plan.

If you experience any of the following signs, it may indicate hearing loss:

  • Difficulty understanding conversations
  • Asking others to repeat themselves frequently
  • Turning up the volume on electronic devices
  • Perceiving muffled or unclear sounds
  • Feeling isolated in social settings due to communication challenges

A comprehensive hearing evaluation conducted by an otolaryngologist can determine the extent and nature of your hearing loss.

Yes, there are steps you can take to protect your hearing. Avoid prolonged exposure to loud noises by using ear protection, such as earplugs or earmuffs, in noisy environments. Limit the volume when using headphones or earbuds and take regular breaks from prolonged listening. Also, maintain good ear hygiene by avoiding using cotton swabs to clean your ears, as they can push earwax deeper and cause damage.

If you suspect hearing loss or have concerns about your hearing, contact our team for an evaluation and guidance.
