Our expert team understand the importance of maintaining your hearing health.
While it may seem like a small issue, hearing loss can impact every aspect of your life, from social interactions to work productivity. That’s why it’s crucial to get regular hearing tests and take steps to protect your ears.
One common issue that people experience is earwax buildup. While it may be tempting to clean your ears yourself, using cotton swabs or other objects can actually push the wax further into the ear canal and cause more harm than good. Instead, schedule a professional wax removal with one of our team, who can safely and effectively remove any excess buildup.
Another important aspect of hearing health is regularly getting hearing tests. This isn’t just for those who have already experienced some level of hearing loss – everyone should get tested at least once every ten years up until the age of 50 and then every three years after that. This will help catch any potential issues early on.
When dealing with hearing aids, it’s important to remember that they are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Each person has unique needs, so finding the right device for you requires an individualised approach. Working with an experienced Audiologist (like one of our team here), will ensure that you get a device that fits comfortably and effectively enhances your ability to hear.
Maintaining good overall health is crucial for maintaining good hearing health as well.
Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption have been linked to hearing loss, so reducing these habits can help protect your ears. In addition, protecting your ears from loud noises by wearing earplugs or other protective devices when necessary is important in preventing noise-induced hearing damage.
In conclusion, taking care of your ears is essential in maintaining good overall health and wellbeing. Regularly getting checked by an Audiologist for wax removal and hearing tests and making lifestyle changes such as reducing smoking or exposure to loud noises can make a significant impact on preserving your ability to hear for years to come.
