Hearing Aids, Earmolds, & Plugs

With so many different causes of hearing loss it is not surprising that nearly 40 million Americans suffer from some degree of hearing loss due to one or several factors. The phenomenon of hearing is achieved with not only the ears, but also the brain. When one experiences hearing loss the presentation of sound delivered to the brain is decreased, ultimately causing the brain to forget how to interpret sounds. This depriving of the brain of sound stimulation is referred to as auditory deprivation and these effects are not reversible, but are preventable with timely hearing aid use.
