“Caring for you like family .”
Are you in the Trussville area and lacking the hearing ability you once had? Don’t wait to get treatment while your listening skills suffer; hearing is an important factor for both safety and quality of life. Everyday activities that are rarely given a second thought can be made exponentially more difficult without the ability to clearly hear. Thankfully, our ENT clinic in Birmingham, a quick 20-minute drive from Trussville, is staffed with an experienced medical team ready to help you address this pressing problem.
When you come to our clinic for hearing aids in Birmigham, you’ll be asked about how and when your hearing problems started. You’ll also be asked questions relating to how this is affecting your quality of life and your ability to make an income. Once you’ve answered our questions, an ENT doctor will put you through an ear, nose, and throat screening. Another test that is available to test your hearing is called an audiogram. This is done by utilizing headphones in a soundproof booth to check the quality of each ear independently. The test typically takes less than an hour to perform. After your ENT doctor has evaluated your hearing issues, they’ll offer their suggestions for treatment.
Hearing aids are recommended if hearing loss is significant enough to warrant it. Although people commonly associate hearing loss with aging, nerves might be able to be fixed in a surgical manner. If this is impossible, then a hearing aid is the recommended option to restore hearing functionality as quickly as possible. A quality ENT doctor will leave no stone unturned.

CIC or completely in the canal hearing aids are molded to fit inside the ear canal. CIC hearing aids are perfect for adults with mild and moderate hearing loss.
ITC or in-the-canal hearing aids are custom-molded but only fit partly in the ear canal. ITC hearing aids are larger than the CIC, but still less visible, and they are ideal for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. They also have more features than the CIC hearing aids.
ITE or in-the-ear hearing aids have two styles to choose from: either filling most of the outer ear's bow-shaped area or only the lower part. Both styles work well for those with mild to severe hearing loss.
BTE or behind the ear hearing aids are usually what one thinks of when thinking of hearing aids. The BTE hearing aids hook over the tip of the ear to rest behind it. It is suitable for any hearing loss, has a variety of features, and can be more amplified than the other hearing aids.
RIC, receiver in canal, or RITE, receiver in the ear have tiny wires connecting the receiver to the hearing aid, making the RIC hearing aid less visible.
