According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), approximately 20 percent of Americans (48hearing aid million people) report suffering from some degree of hearing loss. Depending on the type, cause, and severity of this hearing loss, hearing aids can improve quality of life by making it easier for people to communicate. If you are looking to counteract your hearing impairments, the specialists at Arizona ENT in Sun City and Sun City West, AZ, offer a range of diagnostic and treatment options to help you!

Hearing Aids from our Sun City Offices

Hearing aid devices use microphones and speakers to help amplify sounds so that people with hearing loss can participate in conversations and hear what is happening in their surroundings. There are different types of hearing aids available, which have been modernized and improved thanks to digital technology. They include:

  • In the Canal: In the canal hearing aids are custom designed to fit completely inside the canal, and they are a good option for mild to moderate hearing loss. A smaller portion of the device is visible outside the ear than with other models.
  • Invisible in the Canal: This model is placed further in the ear canal so that it is completely invisible and is a good option for mild to moderately severe hearing loss.
  • Receiver in Canal: The receiver/microphone portion of the device is placed inside the canal and attached to the device behind the ear with a wire.
  • In the Ear: A slightly larger device that is placed in the outer ear (either full or half-shell options are available). The device is visible to the naked eye but fits inside the ear. Suitable for mild to severe hearing loss.
  • Behind the Ear: The device hooks over and rests behind the ear and connects to an amplifier in the ear canal. Appropriate for most types of hearing loss.
