When it comes to hearing loss, there are three main categories:

Conductive Hearing Loss – Disruptions To Your Hearing

Conductive hearing loss is often caused by a disruption on the path sound makes travelling from the outer/middle ear to the inner ear. Often caused by an obstruction in the ear canal, this type of hearing loss can present ear wax or liquid blocking sound from reaching the ear drum. There are many treatments for conductive hearing loss including: medical treatments, ear wax removal, and surgical treatments, available to residents of Chatham-Kent at our modern hearing clinics.

Sensorineural Hearing Loss – Distorting Sound

As the most common type of hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss (or sensorineural deafness) can make sounds unclear or difficult to hear. When experiencing sensorineural hearing loss, you may find voices in conversation are distorted, or you hear others are mumbling instead of speaking. There are many reasons you’re experiencing sensorineural hearing loss, including the natural ageing process, or excessive exposure to noise. We often treat this type of hearing loss with hearing aids, expertly selected and installed at our hearing clinics local to Chatham-Kent.

Other Hearing Loss Types

You may find that you have lost certain sound frequencies, such as high or low frequency sounds, or that only one ear is affected by hearing loss. No matter the type of hearing loss you are experiencing, your first step is to schedule a hearing test.

Fully trained and experienced, our hearing care technicians expertly deliver your hearing test, evaluating the results, and providing you with in-depth analysis of your hearing loss and options for treatment.
