Hearing Aid Selection
Choosing the best hearing aid to fit your needs can be tricky. Multiple factors are considered when deciding which hearing aid is best for you. You and your hearing aid specialist will look at the type of hearing loss you have, what the cause was, and the structure of your ear to choose the best hearing aid for you. There are four types of hearing aids:
- Behind the ear- a small plastic device that rests outside the back of the ear.
- Inside the ear- a small plastic device that rests inside the outer ear.
- Inside the ear canal- a small plastic device that rests halfway into the ear canal.
- And completely inside the ear canal- a small plastic devise that rests completely inside the ear canal.
Each of these hearing aid selections have benefits and drawbacks, each of which will need to be considered when choosing the right one.
