Proper Hearing Aid Care and Maintenance
Proper care and maintenance can extend the life of your hearing aid and can help maintain optimal performance while ensuring proper ear hygiene.
To avoid some common hearing aid problems, we will teach you how to properly clean and maintain your hearing aid. Proper cleaning can help to prevent earwax buildup and blockages, which can cause inconsistent hearing aid performance, or may not allow it to work at all.
Ensuring that you replace dead batteries will also ensure consistent hearing aid functions, without distorting sounds or having inconsistent performance.
Sometimes, despite cleaning your hearing aids at home, earwax can become too hard to remove yourself. Bring your hearing aids in to our office for a free cleaning; we have specialized equipment including an ultrasonic cleaning tool and vacuum to get your hearing aid clean and to ensure it is working at maximum capacity.
