Hearing Aid Maintenance and Care

Regular hearing aid maintenance and daily care will dramatically reduce the need for repairs. Dysfunctional hearing instruments can happen for a multitude of reasons, but one of the biggest causes of hearing instrument break down is obstruction. Wax, debris, and moisture build up in the sound or microphone ports can impede the clear path for sound to pass through.

Hearing Aid Orientation

Once your hearing loss has been diagnosed by severity and type, hearing aids will be ordered, manufactured, and returned for fitting and hearing aid orientation.

This appointment typically lasts about 45-90 minutes, but can last longer if you have never worn hearing aids or take less time if you are a knowledgeable previous hearing aid user.
