What is a Hearing Aid?
A hearing aid is designed to amplify sounds in the environment. With the introduction of digital hearing aids, the aid can be programmed using computer software to amplify certain types of sounds the patient is missing. Though a hearing aid does not restore normal hearing, it can drastically improve listening abilities, even in the presence of background noise. Hearing aids come in different styles, colors, and levels of technology in order to best fit the lifestyle and listening needs of the patient. Aids can feature volume controls and multiple programs to further assist in difficult listening environments.
Hearing Aid Styles
Behind-the-Ear hearing aids (BTE)
BTE hearing aids are designed to fit any type of hearing loss and are discrete and comfortable. The components of the hearing aid are contained in the casing, which sits behind the ear. The sound is delivered to the ear canal through the speaker, or wire, which is held in the ear canal by a silicon dome or a custom ear mold.
Custom In-the-Ear hearing aids (ITE)
ITE hearing aids are small and discrete with all of the components fitting within the ear canal and the outer ear bowl, which is called the concha. ITEs are suitable for mild to moderately-severe hearing loss. This type of hearing aid requires a custom impression of the ear, which is made in the office.
