During your hearing aid fitting we will take the time to adjust your devices in accordance to your unique preferences. We encourage patients to remember that it takes time to adjust to wearing your hearing aids, as your brain needs to practice processing whichever long-lost sounds it’s been missing. This reactivated neural processing of newly-amplified sounds can make wearing hearing aids feel strange at first, but it will get more comfortable as your brain and ears slowly adjust.
The audiologists at Northeast Georgia ENT recommend follow-up care to maintain your initial comfort with your hearing aids and to address any concerns that come up as you use them in your day to day life. We encourage several follow-up visits initially, and then like to see patients every 3 to 6 months for general care.
Remember, if you have concerns about the comfort or function of your hearing aids, please don’t hesitate to call us. The solution might be a simple repair or a quick adjustment, so keep in mind we are here to help!
