One of the most critical part of a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive growth involves their sense of hearing. Being able to hear properly hugely influences the way they develop their ability to learn at school and function socially.

It’s just not complete without these sounds.

Hearing is an important part of everyday life, yet most people don’t realize when they are damaging their ears. Causes of hearing loss include infections, aging, and brain injury, but one of the most common is noise exposure. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) can develop after one occurrence of extreme noise exposure or after listening to very loud sounds over time. Everyone has tiny hair cells in their inner ear (cochlea) that vibrate and send an electric signal to the auditory nerve, allowing you to hear. Different groups of hair cells interpret different sound frequencies. Over time, if enough of these hair cells are damaged or broken, hearing loss results.

There are numerous state-of-the-art hearing aids available with different styles, features, and cosmetic solutions that can greatly enhance your daily life without hindering your individual lifestyle.
But all hearing aids have certain characteristics in common. They are made to selectively increase the volume of the sounds you want to hear. They can make soft sounds audible, while at the same time making moderate or loud sounds comfortable, thus providing relief in both noisy and quiet situations. No hearing aid can solve every hearing problem or restore normal hearing, but they are designed to provide amplification so that you can hear and understand better.
