Hearing Aid Fitting
Scheduling a hearing aid fitting is a crucial step to making sure your new hearing aids work properly. Getting a snug, custom fit helps make sure that you don’t hear feedback and helps keep them from falling out.
We’ll also take this time to show you how to insert and remove your hearing aids properly, how to clean them without causing damage to the device, and how to retrain your ears to hear again.
Hearing aids are not just earbuds or mini-speakers. Getting a proper fitting is akin to getting a prescription for eyeglasses. Your ear is unique. What will fit and be comfortable in your ear canal all day will be different from other people. In addition, hearing aids are programmed to the exact results of your hearing test so they complement your ear’s current hearing ability.
Some types of hearing loss require specific kinds of hearing aids and may require making a mold of your ear so that it sits correctly in the canal. Even if custom molds are not necessary, getting a snug fit will help reduce feedback and issues with comfort.
