Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance
Hearing aids contain small electronic parts that may undergo damage with time. In such cases, it's recommended to visit your hearing professional to assess the issue. Whether the issue is due to aging, exposure to moisture, excessive wax, debris, or physical damage, it's essential to have your hearing specialist evaluate the extent of repairs required.
Common hearing aid issues
If you encounter issues with your hearing aids, such as a lack of sound or a loose battery door, don't worry. Even with proper care, these problems can occur. You should bring the hearing aids to your hearing care professional for assessment and repair if needed. In some cases, minor repairs can be completed in the office quickly, while others may require sending the devices to the manufacturer. Your hearing specialist will help determine the necessary repair and act as a liaison between you and the manufacturer to keep you informed about the repair status.
