Many people with sensorineural hearing loss benefit from wearing traditional hearing aids, which work by amplifying sounds, but they are not effective for everyone. To benefit from wearing hearing aids, you must have some level of hearing left. Otherwise, no amount of sound amplification will help you hear better.

How Cochlear Implants Can Help When Hearing Aids Do Not

Cochlear implants do not make sounds louder; instead, these advanced technological hearing devices make speech clearer. They do so by bypassing the damaged sensory cells in the inner ear and delivering the sound signals directly to the auditory nerve, which then transmits the signals to the brain.

Cochlear implants have both interior and exterior components. The interior components are surgically placed in the inner ear during an outpatient procedure. The exterior components, which consist of a microphone and speech processor, send sound signals to the interior components via a specialized transmitter and receiver system. After surgery, the devices are programmed and finetuned to ensure optimal hearing in challenging settings, such as noisy restaurants and echoing lecture halls.

If you struggle to comprehend spoken words and hearing aids have not helped you, cochlear implants may have a dramatic effect on your quality of life. To learn more, contact Hearing Smile Professionals today and request a consultation with an audiologist at our office near Hershey, PA.
