We offer a number of hearing care services
Our multidimensional approach to hearing health care involves not only a medical component in diagnosing and monitoring hearing loss, the health of outer and middle ear, but also rehabilitative components of living with a hearing loss.
Services we offer
Do you have trouble following conversations on the phone or at busy restaurants? Is your family always complaining about how loud the television is when you're watching? You may have hearing loss. Because hearing loss is generally gradual, many people are unaware that they have it until it is too late. Don't put it off any longer if you think you might have a hearing problem - see us for a hearing test.
Hearing Aid Repair
While hearing aids are small in size, the technology they contain is amazing. As with most medical devices, they are prone to wear and tear from every day use and require regular maintenance and timely repairs to ensure optimal performance. At Sioux Falls Audiology Associates, we do hearing aid repair in our office, whether you bought your device from us or not.
Tinnitus is typically described as a "ringing in the ears," although it can also take the form of other sounds, including a whoosh, a pop, a buzz, a clanging, a rush of air, a whistle, or a roar. Tinnitus sounds can be regular or intermittent, affecting one or both ears. Though there is no cure for tinnitus, we offer treatments that can help to relieve the symptoms.
Custom Hearing Protection
The best line of defense against hearing loss is wearing hearing protection such as earplugs. The most readily available foam earplugs can be painful to wear or muffle noises in a way that makes it difficult to listen to regular conversation. Many people also feel self-conscious with bright orange plugs in their ears, so they might go without protection instead of wearing this noticeable ear protection. That's where custom hearing protection can be useful.
Earwax provides an essential function by keeping dust and dirt from entering the ear canal. But too much earwax can cause problems for your hearing and ear health. If you have impacted earwax, you shouldn’t try to remove it yourself because your efforts may lead to an ear infection or other injury. We offer several ways to remove earwax depending on the amount of impacted earwax and the condition of your ear canal.
