Hearing loss has three main categories:

Disruptive Conductive Hearing Loss

Usually caused by a disruption of the sound’s path, conductive hearing loss stops sound as it travels form the outer/middle ear to the inner ear. Possibly caused by an obstruction, this type of hearing loss may mean there is wax or liquid preventing sound from reaching the ear drum. We offer a range of treatments for conductive hearing loss to Highgate residents within our state of the art hearing clinics including: surgical treatments, medical treatments, and ear wax removal.

Most Common Sensorineural Hearing Loss

As the most common type of hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss can also be called sensorineural deafness. Those experiencing sensorineural hearing loss complain that sounds are unclear or difficult to hear. Conversations can become difficult as voices become distorted, seeming like they are mumbling. Though sensorineural hearing loss can be triggered by the natural aging process, it can also be caused by excessive exposure to noise. This type of hearing loss is commonly treated with hearing aids, which we can help you select and install within our hearing clinics near Highgate.

Whether your hearing loss is localized to one ear, or you are losing certain sound frequencies, such as high or low frequency within our hearing loss, we are able to assist you in improving your hearing health, take the first step by scheduling your hearing test.
