At Beltone, we understand that anyone experiencing hearing loss will likely go through a range of emotions, and will also have many questions about possible treatment. We believe that being educated about the facts surrounding hearing loss is the best way to alleviate some of the apprehension. We encourage all clients to take an active role in this process, and know that with the right information, you will be in a better position to make informed decisions about what is best for your hearing health.

There are three basic categories of hearing loss which are:

Conductive Hearing Loss

Conductive hearing loss generally affects the outer or middle ear. In many cases, it is temporary and can be corrected. Conductive hearing loss can be treated with medication, surgery or a simple wax removal procedure. This type of hearing loss can be due to a variety of factors such as:

  • A build up of fluid or wax
  • Infection
  • A punctured ear drum
  • Otosclerosis

Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Sensorineural hearing loss is caused by noise or the natural aging process, and accounts for approximately 90% of all hearing loss in adults. Sensorineural hearing loss is treated with amplification (hearing aids), and in some cases, surgery. Some facts about Sensorineural hearing loss include:

  • Difficulty hearing high frequency sounds and some spoken words
  • An easier time hearing lower frequency sounds such as vowels
  • The volume of sounds seem diminished and distorted

If you feel that you have been experiencing hearing loss to any degree, we encourage you to contact the Delaware Beltone hearing test center closest to you for a free comprehensive hearing assessment. Once your hearing evaluation is complete, we will let you know if you have hearing loss and if you are a candidate for hearing aids. If a medical referral is needed, we will be happy to refer you to a physician. If hearing loss is diagnosed, we will take the time to explain the type and degree of hearing loss you have.
