Frequently Asked Questions
Conductive hearing loss occurs when there is a problem with the outer or middle ear that prevents sound from reaching the inner ear effectively. Sensorineural hearing loss, on the other hand, results from damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve. It is the most common type of permanent hearing loss and is often associated with aging, noise exposure, genetics, or certain medical conditions. Registered hearing aid practitioners can assess your hearing and determine the type and cause of your hearing loss, which helps guide appropriate treatment options.
