Tinnitus Treatment Services
Tinnitus is a ringing, buzzing, or other sound present without any external source. Most people experience tinnitus at some time, but for some people the tinnitus persists and becomes a problem. Causes of persistent tinnitus are many – an ear wax plug in the canal, an ear infection, hearing loss, noise exposure, tumors of the hearing nerve, drug side effects and many more.
As part of an evaluation for the cause of tinnitus we will provide a complete audiological evaluation to determine the cause of your tinnitus. When hearing loss is present often the use of a hearing aid can mask the tinnitus. Many people experience relief not only when they are wearing the hearing aid, but for several hours after they remove the hearing aid. This enables them to get to sleep without hearing the sound – and then they can use the hearing aid again in the morning when the sound returns.
