When left untreated, hearing loss can make it not only difficult to make out sounds or conversations, but it can have a negative effect on your brain health as well. To preserve your cognitive abilities and to continue hearing your best, it’s important to schedule regular hearing check-ups

Tinnitus is a hearing disorder where you hear a buzzing, humming, ringing, or whistling sound in your ears when no external noises are present. The symptoms can vary from person to person, as some people experience loud symptoms while others may hear a quiet noise. For some they hear the phantom sounds on a regular basis while others only hear the sounds occasionally.

While there is no tinnitus treatment that can cure ringing in the ears completely, there are management options. Hearing aids are a great tool as they can distract your brain from tinnitus by amplifying your surroundings. If tinnitus is bothering you, the first step to relief is a hearing exam.
