What type of hearing aid might I receive?

At Advantage ENT, you can choose from a variety of hearing aid styles, including:

  • Invisible in-the-canal
  • Completely in-the-canal
  • Half shell or in-the-canal
  • Full shell or in-the-ear
  • Mini behind-the-ear
  • Receiver in-the-ear
  • Behind-the-ear with earmold

These hearing aid styles range from the classic style that sits outside your ear to models that fit inside the ear canal and are virtually invisible.

What happens during my hearing aid evaluation?

The audiologists at Advantage ENT conduct a hearing aid evaluation to fully understand your specific communication needs and lifestyle in order to make the best hearing aid recommendation. They talk with you about your most difficult listening situations and the times when it’s most critical for you to have optimal hearing.

They explain the different features of each hearing aid style and help you decide which one is best for you. Depending on the type you choose, your audiologist may take an impression of your ears for a customized fit. 

What happens after I get my hearing aid?

After your new hearing aids arrive, your audiologist meets with you for a hearing aid fitting appointment. During this appointment, they will assess the fit of the hearing aids and program them specifically for your hearing loss. 

Adjustments can be made based on your feedback, for optimal comfort and audibility. You will also undergo live speech mapping, an advanced technology that allows your provider to see what you hear.

The visual display of live speech mapping shows the difference hearing aids can make in your hearing. It also allows your provider to program your hearing aids for your unique needs.

Once you have worn your hearing aids for a week or two, you will return to see your audiologist for a follow-up appointment. They will discuss your experience with the hearing aids, make any necessary programming adjustments, and review important information with you to ensure that you are successful with your new hearing aids.

What if I can’t hear well with my new hearing aid?

All hearing aids purchased at Advantage ENT come with a trial period of at least 45 days. During this time, you can return to our office as needed for fine-tuning adjustments or additional instruction on using your devices.

If your hearing aids don’t suit your needs, Advantage ENT can exchange them for different devices at any time during your trial period. The exchange doesn’t cost extra unless you decide to upgrade to higher technology than originally chosen.

You can also decide to return your hearing aids for any reason during your trial period. Advantage ENT may charge a small fee to cover the audiologist’s time if you do return them.

When you need hearing aids, the team at Advantage ENT supports you every step of the way. Call the office or request an appointment online today.
