When it comes to hearing aids one size doesn’t fit all. At Tustin Hearing Center, we take each patient’s individual needs and hearing into account when recommending a hearing device. A hearing aid that one patient likes might not be the right one for another patient. We are committed to finding the right hearing solution for each individual.
There are two main categories of hearing aids: daily-wear and extended-wear. The most common type of hearing aids is daily-wear devices. This means you put them on in the morning and take them off in the evening. You are changing batteries roughly once a week and take care of the cleaning and maintenance of the devices.
Whether you are spending the turkey holiday at home or away, we hope you have a wonderful time.
We want to remind all you hearing aid wearers out there to make an appointment to have your hearing aids serviced before your busy holiday festivities begin. Thanksgiving Day is right around the corner and we want to make sure you hear every word, every whisper, and every laugh this Thanksgiving. Call your hearing care professional and schedule an appointment to have your hearing aids cleaned and checked!
Over 36 million American adults have some degree of hearing loss. That is over 4 times the amount of people who live in New York City. The statistics are shocking and even more so knowing that over half of those 36 million Americans are under the age of 65. Hearing loss is an increasing health concern in this nation that is often preventable. Taking time to see an audiologist for regular hearing screenings and knowing the signs of hearing loss can protect your hearing. Tustin Hearing Center is encouraging you to make an appointment with an audiologist this October during National Audiology Awareness Month.
MYTH: There is nothing I can do about my tinnitus.
FACT: Many people complain to health care professionals about ringing or buzz-ing in their ears and are told that there is little they can do about it. “Tinnitus is just something you will have to deal with,” they say. “Try to ignore it.” But the fact is that there is a LOT you can do to lessen the effects of tinnitus.
