Hearing loss can make you miss out on conversations, social events, and important information. Dr. Fletcher at the Georgia Center for Ear, Nose, and Throat can help you get your hearing and confidence back.
Why It Happens
Hearing loss can happen when you are exposed to an extremely loud sound. It also typically happens throughout your life when you are exposed to loud noises for long periods of time. Noises can damage your inner ear mechanism, lead to earwax buildup, and even rupture your eardrum. Aging, heredity, and some medications can also cause hearing loss.
Safe and Unsafe Noise Levels
Safe noise levels are under 80 decibels. Normal conversation is around 60 decibels. You are at risk for hearing loss when you are around sounds such as motorcycles at 90 decibels and rock concerts at 110 decibels for long periods of time. A single exposure to loud noises such as an ambulance siren at 120 decibels can cause loss.
Testing and Treatment
Your ENT Otolaryngologist can give you hearing tests to see whether you are able to hear loud and quiet sounds at different pitches. You might also have an exam to see whether there is buildup of earwax or if any of the structures in your ear are damaged.
Possible treatments include:
- Hearing aids.
- Cleaning your ears.
- Surgery to drain your ear canals.
- Cochlear implants to amplify sounds.
You can detect and treat hearing loss the Georgia Ear, Nose, and Throat Center. You will not know how much you can get out of life when you hear better until you try it. Schedule an appointment to test your hearing and discuss treatment options.
